8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join Gary Lintern to learn the basics of astrophotography and night time landscape photography. After a short discussion about equipment and techniques, we will head to the ponds behind the castle for a practical photography session. The Moon will have set before the workshop, so the sky will be completely dark. Subject to conditions, we will be able to see and photograph the Milky Way.
- Date: Tuesday 29 October 2019, 8 to 9.30pm
- Venue: Raby Castle, Staindrop (DL2 3AH)
- Booking: Pre-booking essential via Bookeo
- Cost: £35 per person
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).
Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by at least one (paying) adult. Once you reserve your place(s) for the event, expect an email around two days before, with meeting place and any other important details.
This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 23 October to 3 November 2019. #NorthPennStarFest19 #NPennDarkSkies
