ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY




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. You can take photos with fancy DSLR cameras, small digital cameras or even an iPhone. There is no right or wrong way to do astrophotography, just as long as you enjoy the results.

Lessons in astrophotography using DSLR cameras or an iPhone are offered by our astronomers. We can instruct you in taking various forms of astrophotography including milky way star field shots with a traditional camera lens and tripod, or through-telescope pictures of deep sky objects. You must provide a camera, lens or smart phone. We have tripods, telescopes and adapters for Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras.

If you are interested in lessons in astrophotography feel free to send us am email at: 29palmsastronomy@gmail.com.



Two types of astrophotography:
1) Canon 60DA with tripod.
2) Orion 80mm ED refractor on a Losmandy G11 mount + Canon 60DA.
