Astrophotography using your existing camera and lens, with Roger Groom

Past Event

Using your existing DSLR or mirrorless camera, what astrophotography can you try? Roger Groom will explain wide-field astrophotography using your existing camera and wide-angle lens.

Get the most from your existing photographic equipment and learn what direction you might take, what purchases you might make down the line, if you want to delve deeper into the world of Astrophotography.

(Please note that this is an introductory talk which does not include a practical component so there is no need to bring equipment.)
