Isle Royale Night Sky Photography Workshop – Sept. 12-16, 2017 - SOLD OUT (waitlist only) 

Isle Royale National Park – a 45 mile - long island in Lake Superior – is a
true wilderness area known for it's moose, wolves and boreal forest and
is an ideal location for viewing the dark night skies of Upper Michigan. It
is a perfect location to catch a display of the aurora borealis, should
activity occur. This exciting night sky photography workshop is timed to
occur near the autumn equinox, which improves the odds of possibly
seeing the elusive aurora borealis.
This workshop is for anyone who would like to learn about night sky
photography techniques and the workshop schedule will be fluid, with
priority given to maximizing our night sky field photo shoot time.
Participants will leave the workshop knowing the basics of getting
consistently sharp and well - exposed night sky photographs in any
conditions, as well as a list of references for planning efficient night sky
photo shoots.
