Milky Way Photography

Lusscroft Farm

Tues Oct 17 and Wednesday Oct 18  7:45 pm

I am putting together one last Milky Way shoot at

Lusscroft Farms before winter sets in and the

Milky Way is to low in the sky. As of right now the

weather is looking great for Tuesday night the 17th and Wednesday night the 18th so I will be going out

both nights. Wednesday night will be new moon also!!! I am planning on arriving at 7pm both nights to be ready for astronomical twilight which starts at 7:47pm.

Temps are forecast to be in the low 40s so

remember to dress warm!!!!

Also, double check the basic equipment list below. I will have extra hand warmers, tape, and one extra red light if you can't find them.

Hope to see you all at the farm, it should be a very clear, dark night!!!!

If you have any questions feel free to email or call me.

Clear skies!!!

Sparta Camera Club is a friendly group of photographers from Sussex, Morris, Warren and Passaic Counties in northern New Jersey. We enjoy all types of photography with a full program from September through June including competitions, critiques, workshops, field visits, seminars, presentations and exhibitions. 

These programs are designed to appeal to photographers of all ages and all skill levels and experience. Some members have advanced equipment but this is not necessary to participate fully in our activities. All cameras, including  point and shoot and film models, are fine.

If you are interested in the club come along to one of our meetings as a guest - there's no charge and no commitment. If you’d then like to join it would be a pleasure to welcome you as a member. For more information about the club and our activities click HERE.

If you have any questions please email info@spartacameraclub.org

All photographers are welcome.   Just stop in!
