Astrophotographer, equipment consultant and author Tom Kerss explains how to take your first step into astro imaging with the smartphone in your pocket.

He’ll look at some of the targets that a smartphone can capture in the night sky, from atmospheric effects like noctilucent clouds to nightscapes with bright planets or the Moon, and take us through some key considerations when it comes to capturing a great night sky image.

You'll be able to submit your questions throughout the talk, which will be answered live in the second part of the presentation.
