Joshua Tree and the Milky Way

Have a DSLR camera and want to learn how to take photos like this? We can teach you!

Astrophotography is a fun way to observe and enjoy astronomy. There are many variations of it, ranging from multi-hour shots with dozens of stacked exposures with hours of processing work, to short snapshot style pictures of as many objects you can find in a single night.

Lessons in astrophotography using your DSLR camera are available and taught by our astronomers. We can instruct you in taking the basic forms of astrophotography, including Milky Way star field shots with landscapes, sunsets and moonrises, using a traditional camera lens and tripod.
