ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

This workshop will explore some of the most scenic locations on Assateague Island for the Quadrantid Meteor Shower. This meteor puts on a stellar show on the peak night with up to and over 200 meteor per hour. I have seen hundreds of meteor in a single night with this shower and it will be an amazing way to ring in 2022.

I will have a group campsite reserved on the island for the night (which is included in the workshop) If you would like to camp with us, please do! It's is encouraged!  Beach camping is one of the best parts of this experience, you really feel connected to the island after spending a night out there. There are a number of hotels in nearby Ocean City, MD for you to choose from if you wish to get a room there and warm up after the workshop ends early on the morning of January 4th, 2022.

WEATHER

Weather can be unpredictable as we all know.  We will still battle through the weather and learn a lot about night sky shooting and our cameras. During the winter months it can be cold so make sure you have the appropriate cold weather gear with you. We will often take a break for any cold by warming up in the cars while our camera's do some work. I will also have wood handy to building a fire to keep up warm at our campsite a fire on the beach.

LODGING

Lodging can be found in Ocean City, MD or Berlin, MD. A group campsite will also be available free of charge for anyone who wishes to camp the night!

 

 

CAMERA GEAR

A full list of camera gear will be supplied to upon registering, the basics are a DSLR camera , wide/fast angle lens, a tripod and a cable release. Cold weather will drain batteries much faster so brining multiple batteries is a great idea.. I suggest to have at least 2 batteries... having 3 batteries is much better. When the first battery dies, you can start charging so that when the last battery is exhausted, you can pop in the freshly charged battery.
