Astrophotography with SIGMA & Robert’s Camera
Capturing the night sky for star trails or the Milky Way can be easy and rewarding. Photographer Marc Lebryk will be at Robert’s Camera for a night sky lecture, before exploring rural Indiana.
Also, try out some special SIGMA lenses that night. SIGMA Tech Rep Brett Wells will be on-site to loan out the latest and greatest lenses to capture the night sky.
This class includes a 30-minute workshop at the Roberts Downtown classroom at 1:00PM. The session will be also shown online through Zoom. It will then be followed by a 2.5 hour, hands-on class from 8:30-11:00PM on June 26th. You do not have to attend the afternoon class to attend the night sky class. Bring your camera, tripods, and cable releases. SIGMA will be providing lenses for most cameras as well as technical advice. Weather permitting.
Rain date: Sunday, June 26th.
Astrophotography is practiced by relatively few amateur astronomers, but it can be done with simple setups and a little dedication. Anyone with a digital camera can enjoy this hobby. It does take patience and study to be successful, and it can be very rewarding. Astrophotography allows you to enjoy the colors and details of nebula and galaxies beyond the scope of what you can see at the eyepiece. It can be a permanent memento of your personal observations and efforts. Purchasing equipment without full knowledge of the configuration requirements for astrophotography can frustrate your efforts and be an expensive mistake. Please consider attending this educational series before any purchase.
