What we're about

Do you love the night sky? Would you like to know more about what you see? At Brighton Astro we are captivated by stars, bewitched by the moon and fascinated by space.

Brighton Astro is a group of cosmic enthusiasts who meet regularly to discuss the universe, exchange knowledge and to gaze at the stars. We are not scientists or scholars, we are ordinary people curious about the wonders of space.

Brighton Astro is FREE and open to everybody, from beginners to experts. Why not come along next month and learn about space?

July 2023: Astrophotography 101 - Deep Sky Objects

Wagner Hall

Our guest speaker this month is Tom Elphick:

My interests in photography and space were bound to collide at some point!

In this talk I will take you through my learnings and the practical side of capturing nebulae and galaxies with a telescope and camera.

Astrophotography comes with a steep learning curve that requires a lot of perseverance and patience but is so rewarding! We'll deepdive into tools & processes and share some of the images captured above Brighton so you too can begin your astrophotography journeys!

Arrive from 7pm for a 7:30pm start.

Please note the new venue for this talk!

For this meeting we will be at Wagner Hall on Regency Road, Brighton.
