Event Date:: 16 January 2020

The “Learn Astrophotography” is a free course running for keen amateur astronomers that are interested in taking their skills further. This event is specifically aimed at those who have always wanted to take astronomy further but have not yet had the opportunity. The project will consist of three workshop sessions, taking place at Alston observatory between January and March 2020, where you will be taught all there is to know about creating your own astronomy image, including how to choose a suitable object for imaging, the importance of image reduction, how to process your own images, as well as learning about the art and science behind taking images.
