Intro to Astro Photography

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.

    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.

    The Silvereyes are tiny birds that love to feast on insects in the Japanese Maple outside my office window. I captured this one just as they were taking off to feed in another tree.

    Title or Location: Arches National Park-Moab Utah
    Arches is considered a dark sanctuary meaning using light painting is not allowed. I went to do Astro Photography in June of 2021. This was taken approximately 2am when the Milky Way rose to the center of the arch. While it is a dark sanctuary, someone was hiking on the other side with a headlamp giving me just a touch of light painting to outline the arch. I held the wide angle lens open approximately 13-seconds, ISO 1600.

    Title or Location: This photo was taken at Johnson Lake, just outside of Banff.
    This little guy waited for me to focus, refocus and take a few steps closer and posed like a pro, moving his head from side to side so I could capture his best side. He was quite happy to cooperate for a minute or two!Shot with a Nikon Z50
