Bowlees Visitor Centre
Join Gary Lintern to learn the basics of astrophotography and nighttime landscape photography. After a short discussion about equipment and techniques, we will head to Low Force.
The Moon will be rising just before midnight, so the sky will be completely dark. Subject to conditions, we will be able to see and photograph the Milky Way.
You will need a camera on which you can adjust the focus, shutter speed, aperture, and ISO manually and a tripod. The best lens would be a wide landscape lens with a wide aperture, but we can work with whatever you have. Wrap up warm and bring a red light torch (if you have one).
There are two sessions to choose from: 6.30 to 8pm; and 8.30 to 10pm.
This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 20 October to 4 November 2018 – www.NorthPenninesStarFest.org.uk
