The 'Shoot the Stars' Night Sky Photography Contest kicks off with a special tutorial by renowned astrophotographer and astronomy author Terence Dickinson. The event is being held at the Tamworth Legion on Saturday, May 9, 2015 beginning at 7 pm. Dickinson will lead the workshop that will provide advice on how best to capture Lennox & Addington County’s spectacular night sky. Dickinson recommends the use of a digital SLR camera for best results for night photography.

Those interested in attending the tutorial are asked to RSVP Rob Plumley from the Lennox & Addington Economic Development Department at 613-354-4883 ext. 3271 or rplumley [at] lennox-addington (dot) on [dot] ca.

Following the tutorial, participants are invited to join Dickinson at the L&A County Dark Sky Viewing Area, located at 7980 County Road 41 in Erinsville (weather permitting). While at the site, he will provide a laser-guided tour of the universe and offer views through his high-powered telescope. Jupiter will be highlighted, which will be in a prime location for telescope viewing. Of course, those with cameras can take this opportunity to begin 'shooting the stars' for the contest.
