Learn the night sky constellations, especially in the context of astrophotography, such as how to locate our milky way galaxy and its path during the year, nearby galaxies, planets in our solar system and the location of interesting objects in the sky.

In this meet-up, we will concentrate on the skills required to master astrophotography such as planning, focusing skills, exposure settings, camera settings, foreground composition and more. Stars will be visible during this session, but not the Milky Way, which will rise later in the night.

The location is not within the quarry, so an easy 5-10 min walk to the headland.

We will also capture the lights of Kiama as a seascape.

A tripod is essential, your current camera equipment will be suitable for this meet-up.

This meet-up is recommended if you are new to astrophotography. An understanding of how to change your camera exposure settings is required.



A separate meet-up "Up-late for the Milky Way" will follow this skills session, if you are keen for a double session to put your skills to the test.
