It's a common misconception that once the sun has set you'll have to retire your camera to your kit bag, but that's simply not true! While light levels do dip dramatically, with a tripod, long exposures, wide apertures and a high ISO sensitivity, you'll be able to record fantastic astro landscapes. However, you may feel a little left in the dark (pun fully intended) when it comes to the kit you'll need to get started.

We recently caught up avid astro and seascapes enthusiast Jen Rogers, based in the stunning setting of north Devon, with a love for the outdoors, hill walking and kayaking. She’s a consultant at the University of Bath and her passion is the natural world and astrophotography.
