Our popular Introduction to Astrophotography workshop is 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 on site at Jodrell Bank.

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 is required to attend this session but you will require your own camera with full manual controls.

The event will take place on Wednesday 15 February, 19:30 – 22:00.

Outdoor clothing and waterproof footwear is advisable. Hot drinks will be provided.

Please note, observing the night sky is weather permitting.

This event is suitable for adults and young people 14+.
