More and more often we see ultra-sharp and detailed photographs of galaxies and nebulae, maybe taken by the Hubble telescope, and therefore it seems impossible to take a beautiful astronomical photograph from the ground with a simple tripod and a camera, but it is not so! With the right technique it is possible! Even if you are not an expert photographer, you can get incredibly spectacular images of the sky, because the sky is a still subject (or almost) and therefore by applying the right actions and settings and with a little final processing the result will be exceptional.
It is a tour for groups of 1 to 4 people who will learn how to shoot manually, how to manage the times, the amount of shots, the ISO and the aperture, some basic notions will be given on how to orient yourself in the sky and which objects are suitable for this type of photography, you will also learn how to best incorporate the sky in a frame that also includes the panorama.
It is necessary to arrive with your own camera, possibly with interchangeable optics, a pair of bright lenses and a sturdy tripod, the guide will also provide a small star tracker and will explain in detail how to use it and what are the advantages of this tool.
In turn, you will perform longer poses for less visible objects. We advise you to use cameras with interchangeable lenses with a fairly large sensor, preferably full frame or apsc, and at least a couple of lenses, a wide angle and a standard, the best results will be obtained approximately with 10/12 mm and 35/55 mm for apsc or 14 / 16mm and 50/85mm for full frame, all possibly f2.8 or maximum f4, even a 100mm with astro tracker is suitable. It is also necessary to have a basic knowledge of your camera and of the setting menu.
There are many places in Tenerife where it is possible take this type of photographs, some of the most spectacular are: The Teide National Park, Masca valley, El faro de Punta de Teno, Punta del Fronton, Zapato la Reina and many others, the exact location may also vary depending on the time of year, on the weather that is very variable and on the type of objects you want to shoot, you will be informed 6 hours in advance about the exact place where the tour will take place, or if you already know the island you can decide for yourself the location and we will be there!
