Be prepared
Be prepared!

  • Know what constellations, planets, and other astronomical objects will be visible

  • Know WHEN is the best time to image them

  • Know WHERE they’ll be on the sky

Practice Practice Practice!

  • It is easiest to practice with your cityscape.

  • Pick a nice spot away from trees with a clear view of the city

  • Play with taking different exposure lengths, then with ISO, then with focus

  • Find the best way to keep your camera stable






Now you can begin tips
Now you can begin! Tips:

  • Once you’ve found the right combination, take minimum 5 pictures of each type. You can always delete them after…

  • For the long exposures, keep your camera stable by holding or propping it up against something solid

  • These will go up in a gallery. Try to find the most unique and awesome astronomical object possible. To do that, look through as many telescopes as possible, and ask people to explain to you what you’re looking at
