The Kitt Peak Experience… Like no other

ADVANCED Astrophotography Workshop

Jupiter with moons Pleiades Star Cluster Spiral Galaxy, M83

Building on the success of our very popular Introduction to Astrophotography workshop, Kitt Peak is proud to now offer an ADVANCED workshop for those who want to go a step beyond! Learn about the various types of CCD cameras available for amateurs and how to use them. Our experienced Imaging Wizards will walk you through the operation of our high-end, professional quality CCD cameras to photograph the night sky. Collect, reduce, and process real data and take home stunning pictures to share with family and friends.*

A special private, behind-the-scenes tour of the National Observatory and a visual observing session from one of the premier dark-sky locations in North America is also included!

*(Please note that like all professional astronomers we are at the mercy of the weather. Should clouds interfere, we will do as much hands-on instruction as possible, but use “canned” data for the image processing.)

(Not sure if the Introductory or Advanced workshop is right for you? Please give us a call at (520) 318-8736 and talk to us. We will help you determine which of these hands-on programs is best for your level of experience.)


Arrival and check-in time at Kitt Peak on the first day of the workshop is between Noon and 2:00 PM, Mountain Standard Time. (Note that Arizona never switches to Daylight Savings Time.)
