  1. Hi Craig, will you be offering a night sky photography course this spring or summer? I’m going to Utah the end of August & would like to try night photography. I just purchased a Nikon D500 to replace my old D90 and am loving it. Thanks.

  2. HI Craig! When will you be holding another Photographing the Night Sky class?
    Ps Must I buy an intervolametre to shoot the sky? I was thinking of buying one but maybe you can suggest a place that has them cheaper?
    I own a 60D Canon and have a fixed prime lens 50 mm at f1.8 and another lens 55-70 mm f2.8 as well as the kit lens….would I still achieve some details in the night sky?

    Take care and hope I can attend one of your workshops!
    Thank you Silvia

    • Hi Silvia! I am not sure yet. I am going to try at some point this summer. You don’t need a Intervalometer to shoot the sky with. You can get away without one. Your lenses are good at 2.8 but if there is anyway you could get a wider lens, that is better. There is a 14mm manual lens made by Rokinon that is awesome for nigh sky work. Send me an e-mail to and I will add you to the list for the course! Thanks! šŸ™‚
