February 4, 2021 (Julian) – A free virtual night sky photography course will be offered March 11 from 6 p.m to 7:30 p.m. with Kevin Wixom, who has been shooting the night skies for years in San Diego, Hawaii and other places.


The program is sponsored by the Julian Art Guild. 


“Have you always wanted to shoot the milky way and stars in the night sky?” an email promoting the free course asks. “This sort seminar will provide the information you need to get started.”


The seminar will cover camera settings, types of lenses, processing techniques and details on shooting in the field.


It will be held online via Zoom, which you can access via a computer or smart phone.

Night Sky

I wish I could go to Julian, I haven't been able to see the Milky Way or Andromeda in decades due to light pollution. I own a four inch telescope and giant binoculars  that now sit in a closet.
