Astrophotography at Raby Castle

Astrophotography at Raby Castle

Tuesday 29th October 2019 from 20:00pm to 21:30pm

Raby Castle
Staindrop, Barnard Castle, DL2 3AH

Join Gary Lintern to learn the basics of astrophotography and night time landscape photography. After a short discussion about equipment and techniques, we will head to the ponds behind the castle for a practical photography session. The Moon will have set before the workshop, so the sky will be completely dark. Subject to conditions, we will be able to see and photograph the Milky Way.

This event is taking place as part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2019 running from 23rd October to 3rd November 2019.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 29/10/2019

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
