Sunday 6th February 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Adult tickets: £10.00

Shooting the stars... with Jeremy Phillips

We are delighted to welcome astrophotographer Jeremy Phillips to Bore Place. He will be delivering a talk aimed at anyone who is interested in discovering how images of the night sky’s most wonderful objects can be captured, or just wants to take a virtual journey through space via his photographs.

Jeremy will reveal what can be achieved with the most basic equipment - a mobile phone and an £80 telescope - showing how you can shoot the moon, capturing its craters and beautiful features, even from a light-polluted urban setting. The journey heads further into space to the stars of our own beautiful galaxy, The Milky Way, revealing what can be achieved with a basic DSLR camera.

Jeremy will also give an overview of how more technically challenging images can be captured with a telescope, even in a light-polluted back garden. These include awe-inspiring nebulas – unimaginably huge clouds of gas and interstellar dust, and distant galaxies millions of light years away.

Astrophotography is a mixture of art, science and technology and this presentation will celebrate all these aspects and wrap up with a question-and-answer session.

(The amazing photo above was taken by Jeremy Phillips, and it features nebula Melotte 15.)
