Night Time Photography Workshop with Steve Bell

Night Time Photography Workshop with Steve Bell

Sunday 23rd February 2020 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Castle Howard Estate
Castle Howard, York, YO60 7DA

When the sun sets and the stars come out, our skies are transformed. Once you understand the basics of how your camera operates and the best times to observe, then spectacular images unfold.

So come and spend an evening with Steve Bell at Helmsley Walled Garden and discover how to take great night sky images. There will be a short talk explaining all the technical aspects. Then, after a warm drink, there will be plenty of time to take your own pictures with guidance from Steve.

This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 23/02/2020

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.
