Jeremy Phillips, @jezbackyardastro created this workshop 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.
