This 1-day workshop is perfect for those who are experienced in photography and would love to learn about astronomy and astrophotography – providing you with the theory, content and experience to produce your own night sky images.
Our workshop will give you the fundamental understanding of nighscapesd and astrophotography – which will offer you various astrophotography techniques that can help you get started in your chosen field. Learn how to produce nightscapes, wide field deep, lunar and solar photography.
As part of the workshop you will see in person a wide range of equipment including telescopes, mounts, tripods, cameras, lenses, filters, software (control and data processing) and more. See how these pieces of equipment and software work together, allowing you to capture the night sky.
Exploring Astrophotography is a 1-day workshop held on a weekend.
Optional Night at the Observatory
Join us for 3 hours at the Perth Observatory where you will be able to put your newly learned knowledge to practice. Learn about the kinds of equipment the observatory utilises to take photographs and have the opportunity to take your own under the guidance of the lecturer.
If time and conditions permit, you may also have the chance to take a photograph of a selected target through one of the telescopes.
Night at the Observatory is at the mercy of weather conditions and may have to be postponed for a night with clear skies.
Star Viewing Night is optional and at an additional cost of $69. (discuss with lecturer on the night)
