You don't need any expensive equipment to take images of the night sky. You just need to be able to get a long exposure for the image. There are quite a lot of Apps out there but NightCap and NightCap Pro have to be the best. The App can take long exposure images, allowing you to take photos of the night sky, meteor showers, the ISS & star trails. Keep in mind that you will need a way of keeping your phone or IPad still as the smallest of movements will ruin any imaging attempt due to the length of exposure needed.

Don't forget to upload your images to the Facebook group and we will add them to the member images section of the website to showcase them!
