There have been several members that have asked for a session on sky / star / night photography.

This meeting we will try something different. We will spend a good part of our meeting out side in the Arboretum attempting to photograph the sky (stars). So bring warm clothing, your cameras, flashlights and tripods.

This is going to be an experiment for all of us. We will try different settings and compositions. This an opportunity to practice your photographic skills with others.
