2 night practical night sky photography workshop

On the night of 13th and 14th December 2015 we will witness a spectacular phenomenon of the Gemenids meteor shower. Looking at a Shooting star (which we commonly call them) in a star studded sky excites everyone. Now imagine about 60-80 of them visible in just one hour(during peak). The gemenids meteor (famous for its bright colorful fireballs) is one of the most reliable meteor showers visible from earth.
The Gemenids astrophotography workshop not only provides you an opportunity to witness this beautiful phenomenon, but also enable you to capture it in form of beautiful images.
It is a two night workshop held at Sariska National park, Rajasthan. Away from any major light pollution source within a radius of 35 km Sariska National park provides one of the best views of the night sky within 300kms from Delhi.
This workshop is a blend of practical session and lectures on astrophotography. It develops conceptual clarity of basics of night sky photography with loads of practical hands of experience. The number of participants have been limited with ensures quality of the workshop and everyone will get ample time at all the stations to use every setup individually.

Why is geminids of 2015 special?
For last 2 years gemenids meteor shower was happening on moonlit night which was ruining the whole view of the shower. All the fainter meteors were not visible due to the bright moon light. This year the moon is only 4.6% illuminated and is setting early in the evening giving us a wonderful opportunity to observe the meteors the whole night with any disturbance.
All lectures of astrophotography are practical demonstration based sessions.
