Astrophotography lets you capture and share the rich detail and color of the night sky. Nebula that appear back and white when looking through a telescope can become vibrantly colorful when captured in a long exposure photograph. This group explores all types of digital cameras and astrophotography, including capturing star trails, starscapes, constellations, the moon, planets, and deep sky objects.

One of the main goals of the Astrophotography SIG is to be open and inviting to everyone. You can come to a meeting with no prior knowledge of astronomy or astrophotography without feeling intimidated. There are lots of friendly people here that are happy to share their knowledge and help you capture your first astrophotos!

Please have a look at some of the photos taken by members at the Seattle Astrophotography Flickr group. Some of these photos are through a telescope, while others required nothing more than a camera on a tripod.

 Where & When

Meetings are held monthly, usually at the Museum of Flight Red Barn Classroom.
