Our popular Introduction to Astrophotography courses are returning this winter.

Join us for an informal and fun session that includes an introductory workshop (co-presented by Jodrell Bank Observatory’s Dr. Ant Holloway), along with a chance for you to try out your equipment and talk to our knowledgeable team.

You’ll learn how to use your DSLR or Compact System Camera to get started in Astrophotography. You’ll also discover how you can use simple equipment such as a tripod, to capture different images of the night sky, from planets and constellations to the colours of stars and star trails. There’ll be a chance too, to look at additional equipment you can use to expand the range of images you make. No previous knowledge required. Wear a warm coat! Tea/Coffee included.

In the case of cloudy skies, you will have the chance to try out your equipment in our Inflatable Planetarium.

Introduction to Astrophotography is a single event, and there are four dates to choose from.
