Astro Photography at Jura by Luigi


A wonderful AstroPhotography workshop has been organized yesterday by Sylvain Chapeland for our club Members. Sylvain has displayed lot of classical astro photography equipment, like star trackers, equatorial mount, infrared dslr, tethering tecniques and post processing software for star alignement, stacking and noise reduction.
All members had the possibility to get great pictures of the night sky with their own camera, and for most of them, I have to report the excitment of seeing what is invisible to the eye, like galaxy, nebula and comets.
I took the opportunity to express my wonder for a field that I have never explored before in photography, trying to take some different pictures. Combining single long exposure, with light painting I got some astro photography view of Le Tiocan that I hope you will enjoy. The full res photos are available on our CERN Photoclub Facebook profile.
