Astrophotography for Beginners at Bore Place

Sunday 25th February 2024 from 00:00am to 00:00am

Bore Place Country House and Outdoor Education Centre
Chiddingstone, Edenbridge, Kent, TN8 7AR, South East

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.

Please note that this has already taken place on 25/02/2024

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.
