Night Sky Photography with Andy Gray

Friday 2nd February 2024 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Lord Crewe Arms
The Square, Blanchland, County Durham, DH8 9SP, North East

The development of camera technology over the past 20 years has enabled us to capture the beauty of the night sky like never before. The Lord Crewe Arms is situated within Northumberland’s Dark Skies and benefits from very little light pollution. Come along and enjoy an evening learning how to get the best out of your camera, improve your understanding of photography, and take great night sky images. All are welcome, with or without a camera. If you have attended Andy’s Stargazing evenings and wish to know more, this is the event for you! There will be some up-to-date astrophotography gear to see if you are interested in getting into this amazing hobby!

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

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.
