What are we going to do

We will leave Tampere and head to a location North of the City lights to have a clear view to the North. The dates are timed for this event to try to be able to catch Aurora at the same time. (Aurora is not guaranteed this far South but I hope to increase our chances of seeing it)

We will focus on the basics of using a camera at night to image the the night sky.
How to set the camera up for manual use
How to focus the camera
How adjust the settings for optimal use
Talking about what we can do with the images
Talking about safety of choosing locations for night time photography
Talking about types of equipment and software

And just enjoying being away from the City lights and seeing the night sky in quite a dark setting.
There is still some small lights here and there but mostly very dark

It is recommended that you have a camera that can change settings manually. Even some phones with manual settings can be used and a tripod of some sorts. A shutter trigger can help but is not important.
