Photographing the night sky is often intimidating to many, but with the right settings, some astronomical knowledge, a few free programs and some basic post processing, even the entry level DSLRs can produce some dramatic images!
Celestial Events SA offers tuition in long exposure photography and some of the techniques used to capture striking Milky Way panoramas and Star Trails. For the more adventurous photographers, we can offer the opportunity to take spectacular images of the Moon, Saturn and bright areas of nebulosity such as The Great Orion Nebula, through our professional Meade 10 inch GPS telescope! We also offer post processing workflows on Photoshop as well as various free astrophotography software.
Please contact us directly with questions regarding equipment and requirements.
