Remote Astrophotography (live from an Observatory in Australia!)

Remote Astrophotography (live from an Observatory in Australia!)

Sunday 27th October 2019 from 13:30pm to 15:30pm

Durham Dales Centre
Castle Gardens, Stanhope, DL13 2FJ

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.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 27/10/2019

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.
