Stumbling Around in the Dark

Stumbling Around in the Dark
Digital photography enables us to capture the beauty of the night sky in unprecedented detail. In this evening of landscape astrophotography, I show how to use an ordinary digital single lens reflex camera to make stunning images of stars, planets, earth's moon and the Milky Way, as well as more elusive astronomical phenomena such as meteors and eclipses. In the second half, I recount travels in the arctic in search of the aurora borealis and on four continents to photograph total solar eclipses.
Each talk comprises approximately 150 high definition images and comfortably fills a two hour programme (inclusive of a 20 minute break midway).
I bring my own high definition digital projector. All my talks focus on showing great images as well as explaining the thinking and planning that went into them.
The fee per talk (effective from 1 January 2019) is £100 plus travel charged from Avebury at 45p/mile. To book please contact me.
