Budding stargazers and astrophotographers can learn about the magic of Exmoor’s night skies thanks to a new short film released by West Country course provider, Dark Sky Destinations.
The five-minute film has been produced to give visitors to Exmoor, and potential course attendees, an idea of why the region is so special for astronomy.
On 8 September, Dark Sky Destinations will be holding its first astrophotography course on Exmoor.
Led by astronomer Will Gater, the evening course – entitled “An introduction to nightscape astrophotography” – will explore the art and science of how to capture beautiful nightscape photos with a DSLR camera. If the weather is good, the course will finish with a guided practical workshop under Exmoor’s exquisitely dark night skies where delegates will have a chance to put what they’ve learnt into practice with their own equipment.
A small number of spaces are left on the September course, so if you don’t want to miss out book your place via www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/an-introduction-to-nightscape-astrophotography-tickets-44449838664 (booking in advance is required).
