The things you see almost every night– the Moon, stars, and Milky Way, are well within the reach of your camera, regardless your level of expertise. Besides the techniques you might use, we will also give an overview of some of the equipment you might need–cameras, telescopes, lenses, mounts, etc., the differences between them and how to use them.

Finally, we will put it all together with a focus on getting what is right for you and getting the most out of the equipment you may already have.

There will also be guest speakers discussing particular fields of interest, and night sky observing during the break or after each session–skies permitting.

This course will run every Tuesday night in November, 6:30 – 9 PM at the Rockwood Park Interpretation Centre. The course is Free, but we do ask that you register as seating is limited.

We hope to see you there! For more information you can contact the host Paul Owen, post questions in the comment section of this page or on our Facebook Event.
