Astronomy: Photography - Mars
Location: Lake Afton Observatory

This month, the astrophotography program will feature the mysterious red planet, Mars. The observatory features a photography program each month where anyone with a 35mm single-lens reflex camera (a camera with a removable lens) can take celestial photographs using the Observatory's telescope as a giant telephoto lens.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children ages 6-12; children under 6 are admitted free. A special family rate is available for 2 parents and their immediate minor children or grandchildren for $15.00.

If visitors do not have a 35mm SLR camera they may bring a USB flash drive with them and the staff will help them use the observatory's digital SLR camera to take photos. Photos will then be transferred to the visitor's flash drive.

Please note that for these astrophotography programs, personal SLR cameras must have a manual override and the user should be familiar with using its manual settings such as changing ISO settings and exposure times. For photographing bright planetary objects like Jupiter, an ISO setting of 400 or 800 and a cable release is recommended. For deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula, an ISO setting of 800 or faster will be needed and a cable release is necessary.

For more information, call 316-978-3991 or email robert.henry@wichita.edu.
Open to WSU Community.
