Astronomy and Astrophotography

COB Photography brings to you an exciting exploration of the universe as presented by Carl O ‘Beirnes one of Ireland’s leading astronomer and astrophotoapher.

Carl has also appeared on many episodes of the BBC Sky at Night TV show with the late Sir Patrick Moore displaying his work on the night sky. Carl also runs and owns J09 Balbriggan Observatory in which he takes images of near-Earth asteroids for the Minor Planet Centre in Massachusetts which is a branch of International Astronomical Union (IAU).

When not taking images of asteroids, Carl enjoys imaging the Planets, distant Galaxies and Nebulae.

COB Photography will be holding photography tutorials on how to photograph the stars and find your way around the night sky. During this tutorial you will view and photograph the Moon, Planets, other solar system bodies and Deep Sky objects.

Why not join us at our professional telescope observatory in Balbriggan. Where you can view the Moon, Planets, and other solar system bodies up close.

We will also be holding Aurora Photography tutorials and trips in Balbriggan, Sweden, and Norway.
