We were given a very well illustrated and informative talk from our speaker for the night, Allen Lloyd (see, called Starry Nights.

Allen advised the best months for photographing the Milky Way was from now until the end of September, between the preferred hours of 10.30 pm - 6.30 am.  He described the different techniques needed for taking star trails, super moons, landscapes by moonlight, split shots, stacked images and panoramas.

Many of Allen's images were from the least light-polluted areas of South and Mid Wales, but a few from other dark areas such as La Palma in the Canaries.  

There is an useful way of finding dark areas - see  Allen also recommended PhotPills app for location information and Starry Landscape Stacker for stacking images.

Next meeting:
Club challenges & shoot reviewed, plus talks on other photographers
