Image of the 1st Quarter Moon by Paul OwenThe Moon is our closest celestial companion, and provides endless opportunities for photography, whether through a telescope or using a camera and tripod.

Deep Sky~

Deep sky imaging is within the reach of anyone, through trial and error and the willingness to make mistakes. The purpose of this course is to cut through some of that trial and error, and propel the photographer a little closer to their goal of taking satisfying images.
