Do you own a Digital SLR camera?
Do you fancy a new challenge?
Then why not try your hand at landscape astrophotography or even a bit of deep sky astrophotography.

Join us up at Stonehaugh where we will show you how to adjust your camera settings for low light photography.

Weather permitting we will spend the night capturing the night sky, if the weather is against us, then we will play with a bit of light painting inside.

Please be aware, when outdoors, temperatures can be severe and the ground underfoot can be soft and wet, to ensure your own comfort, please wear suitable attire.

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.
