STARS IN OUR EYES!

We were given a very well illustrated and informative talk from our speaker for the night, Allen Lloyd (see http://www.allenlloyd.co.uk), 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

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