DARK SKY DESTINATIONS RELEASES SHORT FILM EXPLORING THE MAGIC OF EXMOOR STARGAZING

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.

To watch the film you can visit the Dark Sky Destinations website www.darkskydestinations.com/ or view it on Vimeo at vimeo.com/283467668.

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).
