Masterclass Workshop FAQs

Why can you only photograph the Moon on specific dates?

Good question! We need to have a specific alignment and timing to produce the best images of the moon


What happens if it is overcast?

In the event of complete overcast weather, our Masterclass will be postponed to the next available night. I will send weather updates to participants 2 weeks, 1 week and 3 days before the workshop to provide plenty of time if we need to adjust our workshop date due to weather.

Can my camera and lens photograph the moon?

Most cameras and lens can photograph the moon including Optical Zoom Bridge-DSLR's. Generally a camera post-2013 can photograph the moon with good details with a telephoto lens. For example a Canon 550D (2013) or Nikon D3200 (2012) can photograph the moon with a 400+mm lens. Send a message to see if your camera and lens can.

I do not have a camera, can I join?

Yes of course! I have a spare camera and lens if you are starting night photography.

Do you have an age limit?

Many teenagers have joined a workshop. On the workshop I guide each person through the whole process.

Will you bring your telescope and can I attach my camera?

Yes of course, if you do not have a telephoto I will have my telescope on the night for you to photograph the moon. You may share the telescope with others who wish to do so to!
