Broadrake Bunkbarn & Workshops
Chapel-le-Dale, Ingleton, LA6 3AX, Yorkshire and The Humber
Join local astrophotographer Pete Collins for this free event learning how to capture the stars and foreground detail in the night skies using your DSLR camera or even mobile phone (depending on make and model!).
After a short presentation the plan is to visit nearby Ribblehead Viaduct and capture the iconic structure as foreground to the stars above which are stunning in the very dark skies of Chapel-le-Dale.
Wrap up warm and bring your camera along with a tripod and binoculars for star-gazing. If the skies are not clear, then Pete will have a video lined up to show after a break for refreshments.
If you’d like to go along simply contact the venue or event organiser to let them know you will be attending.
This event is taking place as part of the National Parks Dark Skies Festival 2019.
