Astrophotography on Holy Island

Astrophotography on Holy Island

Saturday 7th September 2024 from 19:00pm to 23:00pm

Holy Island Chare Ends Car Park
Chare Ends, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland, TD15 2SE

This workshop is timed for full astronomical darkness, and maximum visibility of the summer Milky Way.

The route will depend on the group’s preferences, and shooting opportunities. We usually do a short, circular walk, taking in Lindisfarne Castle, and the harbour.

The exact subjects will chosen on the night, but we usually aim for wide views, with as much sky as possible. Over the years, we’ve found a number of really good compositions for Milky Way shots, including landscape features like boats, fisherman’s huts, the harbour and, of course, Lindisfarne Castle.

We welcome all ability levels, from absolute beginners, to people who’ve dabbled with night photography, to more experienced photographers.

The beauty of taking photographs at night is that you start with a blank canvas, and don’t have to allow for daylight. You can either shoot in available light, or add your own with a torch (if you don’t know how to yet, we’ll show you).

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.
