One thing I've had a bit of interest in is running some photography nights, three of my telescopes are optimized for astrophotography, this makes a good combination! Due to some popular request I've decided to run a night specifically for astrophotography.
Tonight what I'm wanting to run is a night for astrophotography with the main object being the moon, it's big and bright and easy to find :) This means that anyone; man, woman or child can bring a camera along. Whether you have a $10,000 DSLR or a cheap $50 Kmart mock up your welcome to come down and do some moon photography.
Although the moon is going to be the prime suspect of the night, Jupiter and its moons will also be visible and photographable for anyone. For people with SLRs they'll potentially also be able to get an average photo of some or the brighter nebulae and star clusters, the telescopes won't be set up for long exposure photography.
Another thing that we can do on the night is try to get some images of the Milky Way in just some simple long exposure photography with a camera and a tripod. It can be some really good fun and you can learn a lot about doing night photography this way without the use of a telescope.
I am currently setting this night for Friday February 22nd but as I'm planning this two weeks ahead I have no idea at all what the weather is going to be like. Closer to the date I may have to change the date depending on what the weather is going to be like on the night. If need be I'll push is back to the next Friday night.
If anyone has any questions just zap me and email :)
