The Wonders of Astrophotography
Have you often looked up at the stars in amazement? Do you pine over shots of the Milky Way, wondering how the photographer was able to capture it? Join photographer Nick Chill for a two-night class covering the equipment needed for astrophotography and how to utilize it to capture the incredible galactic center.
Night 1 – 6pm to 8pm, indoors – From the comfort of the visitor center, we’ll cover manual controls, ideal camera settings, recommended gear, and night photography tricks.
Night 2 – 11pm to 2am – We’ll meet at the visitor center, and at 11:30 begin our walk to our shooting location on the Eagle Bluff property, where we’ll spend the night capturing the beauty of the stars.
Note: A DSLR or similar camera is recommended. A camera with manual controls and interchangeable lens is required. Contact Nick to confirm your equipment meets the requirements: firstname.lastname@example.org.
