Bore Place are delighted to welcome astrophotographer Jeremy Phillips FRAS back to Bore Place for a talk about ‘Shooting the Stars’. The evening is aimed at anyone interested in discovering how images of the night sky’s most beautiful objects can be captured or who wants to take a virtual journey through space via his photographs.
Jeremy will reveal what can be achieved with the most basic equipment – a mobile phone and an £80 telescope – showing how you can shoot the moon, capturing its craters and beautiful features, even from a light-polluted urban setting. Then, the journey heads into space to the stars of our beautiful galaxy, The Milky Way, revealing what can be achieved with a DSLR camera.
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.
