Join Gary Lintern, astronomer and astrophotographer, to see some of the highlights of the spring sky in the Southern Hemisphere, live from a leading Australian Observatory. Using a feed from a remote observatory, we will photograph a number of objects which are only visible at the other end of the Earth, or which look different to how we see them in the UK.
Although you won’t need any equipment, if you bring a laptop you’ll be able to create your own copyright-free photographs from the telescope images. You’ll also be given a copy of the (free) software used to do this. Booking required.
This event is taking place as part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival 2019 running from 23rd October to 3rd November 2019.
