Milky Way Shoot Sat July 14th - Weather permitting 19 May 2018 08:24 #4897

Hi All

I am planning a trip up to Potter's Gorge (Wellington Dam) to try some Milky Way / Star Trail photography on Saturday July 14. Obviously weather will be a factor and the final call will be made a few days before the planned date.

Potters Gorge is only around 40min from Bunbury along good sealed roads.

From the information I have, astronomical conditions should be very good on that date. With an early sunset it should be possible to capture some great images without having a late night.

Potters Gorge has shelters and campfire facilities to provide some comfort and warmth. Camping is possible for anyone keen to brave the chilly morning.

More details to follow...

Regards, Bruce.

Hi All

Please find attached a flyer for the Milky Way Shoot event as well as some How-to documents.

Note that the How-to's are based on being located in the northern hemisphere so some adjustments are needed. However they are still a useful reference.

Cheers, Bruce.

Hi All

Unfortunately it looks like the weather for Saturday evening is going to be wet and windy. Probably not a great night for capturing the night sky!

I think we will have to cancel our planned expedition and then aim for the weekend of the next full moon on August 11. Hopefully we will have better luck with the weather gods then.

Apologies for the change.
Regards, Bruce.
