Join us for an unforgettable evening of photographing Jupiter and Saturn, the gas giant planets, at the Perth Observatory. With Spring being planet season, this year’s show promises to be fantastic, and we’ll help you capture some stunning shots using your camera.
We’ll be rotating 12 participants between four telescopes, so you’ll have plenty of time to experiment with different settings, share techniques, and take advantage of our equipment. Our telescopes are equipped with camera adaptors to connect your camera and record raw footage, which you can take home to process and share with your friends and family.
To participate, you’ll need to have a good working knowledge of your camera and its settings, but don’t worry – we’ll teach you the exact settings to use on the night. Before we head to the telescopes, we’ll have a 30-45 minute theory session where you’ll learn about the equipment, software, and image processing.
When booking, please provide details of your camera brand and model so we can cater to your needs. If you have a T-ring adaptor or Barlow lenses, bring them along to become more familiar with your own equipment.
If the weather is too cloudy to photograph the planets, we’ll replace the workshop with a two-hour beginner’s image processing workshop. However, moderate levels of cloud won’t stop us from proceeding with the workshop if at all possible.
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to capture stunning shots of Jupiter and Saturn.
