RAG has a Special Interest Group dedicated to Astrophotography. 

We provide an additional meeting space for our members who have a strong interest in creating images of the night sky. Our meetings aim to appeal both to people who have lots of experience in Astro-imaging and provide a friendly and supportive route in for beginners, supporting them as they get started in this brilliant hobby.

Each month we focus on a particular process or subject within Astro-imaging with our members demonstrating different approaches and exploring how different equipment and software can be used, then we spend some time sharing pictures and enjoying the images of the universe that we've been able to create. Then we have an unstructured section where we try to help each other with problems we might be having and also show off new equipment and gadgets.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we continue to hold our meetings online but are looking forward to meeting in our Peter Bolas observatory when life returns to normal.

If you're interested in any form of taking pictures of the night sky why not come along? We meet each month- usually on the first Friday of the month and always enjoy welcoming new members.
