Shooting for the Stars – with Jeremy Phillips

6 July @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£5
This online workshop is aimed at anyone who is interested in taking wonderful pictures of the night sky.
 
It charts a journey beginning with the cheapest equipment – your mobile phone and an £80 telescope – showing how you can shoot the moon, capturing its craters and beautiful features, even from a light-polluted urban setting.
 
The journey progresses to shooting nebulas – beautiful, colourful clouds of gas and interstellar dust, thousands of light years away. Then it ventures deeper into space, revealing how galaxies millions of light years away can be captured.
 
The idea is to demystify astrophotography – a mixture of art, science and technology. Anyone can take beautiful pictures of the moon with a minimum of help. Deep space objects are more challenging and require specialised equipment, but aren’t as hard to capture as you might think and this workshop will explain why.
 
We will wrap up with a question and answer session.
 
Jeremy Phillips will be leading this session and sharing his knowledge.  Jeremy is a Streatham local and you can see some of his incredible images on his Instagram page @jezbackyardastro
 
A nominal non-refundable £5 charge will be made for attendance and this will be donated to Norwood & Brixton Foodbank
