Have you ever seen stunning images of the Milky Way? And have you ever wondered how you could take pictures like this of the night sky?

Come learn with professional photographer Andy Porter at Diablo Overlook!

Andy will first discuss the technical side of camera and lens settings to get Milky Way shots, and then assist participants to capture images of our galaxy.

If you want to take an active role in honing your own astrophotography, the following items are required:
  • DSLR camera
  • Wide angle lens (Any wide angle lens is fine, optimum would be between 14mm and 24mm)
  • Tripod
  • Cable release (or any remote shutter release)
  • Headlamp/flashlight
  • Water/a midnight snack if you want!
  • Layers of clothing in case it gets chilly

  • There is no registration limit but if you have questions or need accommodations, please contact the park.

    Due to cloudy skies and inclement weather, the course has been rescheduled to Friday, August 29.
