Lecture(via Zoom): Astrophotography- Onward and Upward

About this event :

18th October Lecture(via Zoom): Astrophotography - Onward and Upward

My journey into Astrophotography started in 2014 after retirement gave me the freedom to stay up ALL NIGHT if I wished to do so and I have been on a massive learning curve ever since.

I was already a keen photographer so how hard could it be to combine a camera and telescope to capture images of Deep Sky Objects!

I joined my local Astronomy club but alas, no one was into imaging, therefore, my journey has been a self-taught, learning adventure. Thanks heavens for the internet!!

In this talk I outline that journey and show some of the images I have captured on the way. If you are already imaging I welcome feedback and advice. If not maybe this will inspire you to have a go!!
