Shoot for the Stars - A Milky Way Photography Workshop
Learn to capture images of the Milky Way galaxy and gaze through the largest telescopes in Arizona dedicated to public observing.
Join us for an overnight workshop at the Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter led by Bettymaya Foott. No previous experience is necessary, a basic understanding of the settings on your camera menus is helpful. We will share introductory techniques for wide-field astrophotography with a DSLR or mirrorless camera, as well as give you a taste of imaging faint and distant celestial objects with your camera through our 32” Schulman telescope.
Learn camera settings, composition tips, shooting basics, basic post-processing flow, and night sky photography best practices. The workshop also includes participation in our popular SkyNights public observing program for a portion of the evening.
