Intro to Astro Photography

Friday 05 July
Wentworth Falls Picnic Area - 7pm - 2 Hours
Blue Mountains Photographers
Robert Palejs
Do you gaze up at the night sky with wonder?

What about looking up at the stars and thinking, how old that light you are seeing is?

Maybe you watch as day and night morph into one, and the stars come out to play.

This meetup is going to cover everything you need to know to start capturing amazing single-shot astrophotography and a few extra bits of helpful advice. The learned basics of capturing a single frame will form the building blocks of your astrophotography journey. Think of this meetup as your first step on that journey or for those who have already started, maybe a road sign.

Astrophotography looks amazing and packs a real punch, however, you do not need to spend a fortune to partake. Does gear make a difference, the simple answer is yes, but it is not the deciding factor when it comes to astrophotography.

This meetup will look at planning your session, camera settings, and required equipment. I want this meetup to help you maximize your current gear as your start capturing milky way shots.

    Title or Location: Taken from Bathurst Observatory at Billywillinga
    The Eta Carina Nebula is a highlight of the Southern skies. Located not far from the Southern Cross, it is a fairly easy target to capture. This image is an average of about 50 frames taken with a Nikon D7200 attached to a 14 inch diameter F2 telescope. The pink areas are hydrogen gas clouds glowing due to the number of younger hot stars within it.

    Image of Comet Leonard from the first of January back in 2022. The comet was not really visible to the eye, but stunning with the wide angled telescope. The image was taken using a Nikon D7200 at the prime focus of this telescope.

    Title or Location: Grow Early Learning - Kelso
    Every Monday and Thursday, my two boys love when daddy picks them up from daycare. I find the time of 5:30pm is perfect, the golden hour of the sun setting. This gives me a brief moment to appreciate another beautiful day living in Bathurst and what it has to offer. A moment of pure silence to take capture a moment that will last a life time and before I walk into my sons daycare and all the fun chaos begins with having 3 kids under 5 bring.

    Title or Location: Date Creek Ranch, AZ
    Lone Joshua tree in the Arizona desert. Captured in Date Creek Ranch just off the Joshua Tree Parkway, north of Wickenburg. It's this city's glow causing the light pollution on the horizon.Wickenburg was once called the "Dude Ranch Capital of the World". It still has several ranches and a decidedly western vibe. It's a great place to check out if you wanna get some old west dust in your lungs. Stack of 4, 15" photos. Sony A7RIV, 14mm F1.8, ISO3200.

    Title or Location: Night-time at Portland Bill lighthouse
    The weather forecast for the night Friday the 3rd May looked very good and because the last time I went to Portland Bill I didn't manage to get home with anything good, I thought of giving it another go. Even though it was a 4 hour drive from my house, I'm over the moon I went there because I haven't seen the sky so nice and clean in a very, very long time, it was just perfect.I took quite a few photos and this one is the first that I want to show you because I love it to bits.As always, I

    Title or Location: St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park
    Saturday night, 5/11/24, I went out to the St. Charles Parish Wetlands Watchers Park wanting to capture some photos of the Northern Lights as the Solar Storm made the aurora visible down here in Louisiana. It was a cloudy night so we didn't get to see any of it. But a thunderstorm was was approaching and "heat lightning" was seen in the distance. As it got closer, the lightning strikes were getting more and more visible even though the storm was still miles away. So I repositioned my camera and

    I went on a hike in Yosemite Valley and unexpectedly found this tree that had a heart shaped hole in the trunk. I stayed until dusk and used my red light on my headlamp to cast the red glow inside the heart. I was inspired by my then girlfriend. I love LOVE!
