Grizedale Forest Visitor Centre, Grizedale, Cumbria, LA22 0QJ
Grizedale is an amazing place to capture the beauty of the night skies. This workshop will show you how to capture these sights for yourself using basic camera gear and a few special techniques.
Come and join award-winning astrophotographer Ben Bush for the night where he will show you around the sky and what is possible to see and capture for yourself.
Also Ben will have a couple of telescopes on hand to show you distant galaxies 2.537 million light-years away and massive clouds of dust and gas deep in space called Nebulae, where stars are born.
This event takes place as part of the Cumbria Dark Skies Festival 2022.
