NEW DATE, Because of the weather, we anticipate the outing 1 day, so new date is 16 of Sept
We propose an outing to introduce astrophotography – i.e. how to take pictures of the night sky – with standard camera equipment.
Program: We will discuss and present the equipment (mount, tripods, camera bodies, lenses), describe how to select settings (exposure time, ISO, aperture, file formats), show the main steps for taking pictures
(framing, focusing, guiding) and processing them (dark frames, stacking software). This is a practical hands-on under the night sky. Shooting the stars will be demonstrated in real time.
Participants are also encouraged to take their own equipment to self-try after demonstration. To make the outing more convivial, we proposesunset pictures over Geneva and Mont Blanc.
