Last night I enjoyed a beautiful evening under the stars at the Perth Observatory with participants from my Shoot Photography Studio Nightscapes workshop. The evening was just perfect – cool but not freezing, slight breeze but not too strong, no cloud!

Thanks to everyone who came along and had a great time. We got to photograph the Moon and Jupiter through an observatory telescope followed by lots of nightscapes and star trail shots, learning the ins and outs of focusing, tracking, ISO, noise reduction and where all our camera buttons are in the dark! I run the Shoot Photography Studio Nightscapes workshop several times each year and also provide one-on-one tutoring on-demand. My astrophotography workshop night at the Perth Observatory is optional and follows on from the two day weekend course prior.
