Astrophotography Courses


2 Hours


Most Tuesday Evenings



Take the first step in your astrophotography journey with an intensive course at Lowell Observatory!

This 2-hour program accommodates a maximum of six guests. Using our 17-inch Planewave CDK Telescope and QSI 683 CCD camera, you will be taken through the process of imaging two different objects. Then, we will teach you how to combine, stack, and edit the shots into full-color images using a program called Pixinsight.

At the end of the course, you’ll take home digital copies of the two images and all of the raw data to use as you like, as well as additional resources to aid you in your astrophotography journey!

Members of Lowell Observatory will receive a 20% discount on their course fee.


One session most Tuesdays, starting at 7:30pm
