As one of the ‘Permission to Trespass’ events around Table Cape and Wynyard, would-be astro-photographers are invited to Table House Farm with leading astronomer Dr Martin George. As Principal Astronomer at Hive, Martin runs the Ulverstone Planetarium. A very engaging speaker, he frequently appears on radio and television in Australia and overseas and writes a weekly column for Hobart’s Saturday Mercury.

While passionate about astronomy, Martin is also a very keen photographer. From the grounds of Table House, with 180° views over Bass Strait and a dazzling night sky over Table Cape, Martin will show us how to photograph the moon and the stars. He chose this night as an optimum date based on the phase of the moon. Not intended for complex, high-tech photography, it’s an opportunity for amateur photographers to learn the basics.

We’ll begin with a glass of wine inside by the fire when Martin will speak about the general principles of astrophotography – basic equipment, exposures, f-stops and more – before we head outside, hopefully to shoot award-winning pictures. You’ll need your camera, a tripod and your warmest winter woollies.

Later, a simple supper, prepared by North-West Tasmania’s much-loved chef, Joseph Bugg, will be served with wine, tea and coffee.

If the weather defeats our attempts at photography, there’ll be more wine, a roaring fire and another presentation from Martin, showing some of the finest images of the universe.

Guests who’d like to shoot the sunset before the main event begins are welcome to arrive from 4.15 pm. Our winter sunsets can be spectacular – and the reverse sunsets are often just as stunning.
