Top Tips

  • Clouds can ruin your night really
    quickly, so keep track of the weather.

  • A new moon is ideal for Milky Way
    photography, although it isn’t required.
    Use an ephemeris to keep track of
    the moon cycle.

  • Have a plan B when photographing
    the night sky as the conditions can
    often be unpredictable.
