Mike Kukucska – Astro Photography-March 9 2020

Once again the HCC had a fantastic speaker to enthrall us at our meeting on March 9. Mike certainly is an accomplished photographer as well as an informative speaker. I have never really had much interest in Astro Photography but after seeing his images involving light painting the foreground my interest is piqued. Mike shared much valuable information on equipment, settings, what to look for and scouting out locations, lunar charts, setups and much more. All this was interspersed with some humorous tales of night time encounters, safety tips and tips to make your spouse understand where and why you are heading out at 1 AM. The images are ones most of us only see in our dreams because that is what we are doing at that hour of the night. There were numerous questions at the Q&A after that Mike took the time to answer. The meeting seemed to go by in a short period of time as it seems to do when a high quality speaker is giving a presentation. Thank you Mike for sharing the knowledge. Reviewed by Tom Kallsen
