This workshop is intended as a basic introduction to astrophotography, using DSLRs or compact system cameras. We will cover basic camera set-up: aperture, focus, shutter speed and ISO. We will give some practical examples of astrophotography: star trails, timelapse, meteors, ISS/Iridium flares.

Finally, we will look at the basics of using a telescope for astrophotography and some basic processing of images.

The presenters will be Mike Meynell and Sumitra Sri Bhashyam.
