Images of the night skies above Exmoor by local astrophotographer Keith Trueman have been delighting social media users and printed media readers for many years. If you have your own DSLR camera and already know how to use it in manual mode, then these workshops are ideal for you: covering the use of camera settings, how to focus in the dark, and composition in the dark, you’ll be given the confidence to move into the world of astrophotography.
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.
