HAG members are from varied backgrounds. Photography is a past time exercised by certain members mostly in isolation from each other. The intention of this group is to share knowledge of the subject with fellow enthusiasts, with and without telescopes

Members are at varying levels of photography, from not tried a photograph complete novice, to those who are actively producing results.

To help particularly experienced members, Photographic Workshops can be arranged with outside sources to expand knowledge, this may spur on novice members to move up the ladder.

My hope is to allow members to share and advise experiences to each other to promote understanding of this vast and varied subject.

Photographing the Night Sky

 “So you have been thumbing through the magazines and surfing the Internet and been blown away by images from The Hubble Space telescope and other sources. You now want to produce images like these. Well, the simple answer is – you can’t, unless you have the wherewithall to send your own telescope up into space. However, don’t let that put you off, because even with quite simple equipment very good photographs of celestial objects can be achieved.”


ALL FAS BOOKLETS £1 +P&P each for members, £2 +P&P for non-members
