Deep Space Course

105 videos in this series

The Deep Space Course will teach you how to use your star tracker or go-to mount and capture amazing photos of nebulae and galaxies.  

Once you've captured your data, we'll go through the processing together. I'll be using a Windows PC for the videos, but I also show how to use the Mac stacking applications, and I always include the relevant Mac key-combos in Photoshop. Regardless of your operating system, you'll be able to follow along without a problem.

We will mainly be using Adobe Bridge, Camera RAW, and Photoshop for our processing. You can get all three programs for $10 a month with Adobe's Photography Plan.

For those with a dedicated astro camera, we'll keep things fairly simple and use DeepSkyStacker for the initial stacking and calibration. (I will not be using PixInsight, Astro Pixel Processor, or any other applications like that.)

The Deep Space Course was originally released in 2018 for beginners who had a DSLR, telephoto lens, and star tracker.  Over the years I've learned a lot though, and I wanted to keep this course updated with this new information.

The new 2022 Edition of the Deep Space Course has tutorials for every skill level - Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.

If you just want to keep things simple, I'll show you my easy techniques for setting up a star tracker, doing the polar alignment, and using your DSLR. Once we get the computer, we can do a few adjustments in Photoshop and have a great final image!

For those that have some experience with astrophotography, we'll take things to the next level with auto-guiders, Go-To mounts, dedicated astro cameras, and narrowband filters. I'll show you how to incorporate this gear into the workflows, and streamline your nightly process.

We also have advanced processing tutorials, for those looking to learn more about narrowband imaging. I'll show you the entire process, from stacking the photos, to creating a color photo, and then incorporating the narrowband data effectively.

All the processing videos were recently re-recorded with the latest techniques and applications.

Once you purchase the Deep Space Course, you receive access to free life-time updates. I go through the course and update the videos each year, as I learn new techniques and new software releases.
