Fancy some Astro-Photography?

Fancy some Astro-Photography?

My friend Subby is an ex pilot a trainer of pilots and an air-traffic controller. Over his long and successful life he has also become a keen astronomer offering his pilots another means of charting their way from here to there without over-shooting the preferred airport.

He now wants to take pictures of the stars and constellations and to this end has joined the mornington peninsula astrological society.  Next year he is willing to bring/take his gear to a suitable location and allow WCC members an opportunity both to look at and photograph the heavens if we so desire.

I will be joining him on this jaunt early in December and will let you know more about it later in the new year – Saves us the trip to the mornington peninsula ourselves I say!

Cheers Andy…

    David I dont know when this will happen but Subby and I will go to the Astronomical Society in December and work something out together. Maybe we can go to Pete Davis place in Cardinia to avoid some of the light polution? Lets ask him.

    Sounds awesome! Would be a fantastic event!

    My place isn’t perfect but has a lot less light pollution. Would be good to have it there because there’s no worries about parking and you want to do some really long exposures you can just set up your camera and leave it without worrying about having your gear knocked off.

    Now that Pete has agreed to lend us ‘his place’ for an astro-photography night, I will see if the astrological society will do a workshop for us at Petes Place. Anyway if anyone wants to join us next month U are welcome. $8 gets U in with a chance to have a go. The last time Subbi and I went it rained.
