The Ultimate Astrophotography Bundle includes all of my courses in one package!  You'll get the Deep Space Course, Star Trails Course, Astro Post Processing Course, and a Star Tracker Course.  With over 40 hours of content, this is by far the most comprehensive astrophotography course you'll find online!  Regardless of what you want to focus on, this bundle will cover it! 

The Star Tracker and Astro Post Processing Courses will mainly focus on Milky Way photography.  You'll learn how to effectively plan out a Milky Way photoshoot, what camera gear I recommend, which camera settings work best, how to use your star tracker, and how to edit your images.  The Post-Processing section has over 10 hours of content, and I will teach  you everything I know about blending photos, creating stunning Milky Way photos, reducing star distortion and grain, how to make your colors stand out, and much more.  

The Deep Space Course is entirely dedicated to finding, photographing, and editing 12 of the best deep space objects for beginners.  For example, let's say you want to photograph the impressive Andromeda Galaxy.  You'll learn where to actually look in the sky, how to find it with your camera, which camera settings will work best depending on your setup, and how to edit the image - from start to finish.  We follow this same blueprint for all 12 of the objects.  The Deep Space Course also includes a full section on auto-guiders.  An auto-guider is a small camera that will drastically increase the tracking accuracy of your star tracker, and allow you to shoot longer exposures with a telephoto lens.  Throughout the Deep Space Course I'll also show you the best ways to setup your star tracker for optimal results.

The Star Trails Course will teach you how to take beautiful images that showcase the motion of Earth.  With over 6 hours of tutorials, this is the most comprehensive series on Star Trails available.  Frankly, star trails are very easy to do - just take a bunch of photos and stack them together.  However, as you'll learn, it takes a lot more work to create a truly amazing photo!  The Star Trails Course will explain how to properly set an interval, which camera settings work best, how to incorporate a full moon, multiple ways to create your star trails photos, how to easily remove plane trails, and how to edit the final stacked image.

The Ultimate Astrophotography Bundle comes in a few different variants, depending on your star tracker.  If you don't have one of the 4 trackers listed, or you already know how to use it, be sure to pick the "No Tracker" option at the bottom.  This will still allow you to get the bundle, you just won't get one of the four Star Tracker Courses.

Individual Courses


The Deep Space Course

This is my best selling course!  It features over 15 hours of tutorial videos focused entirely on deep space astrophotography, making it the most comprehensive course available online!  The Deep Space Course is mainly designed for photographers who have a DSLR, telephoto lens (or small telescope), and a portable star tracker.  I will teach you how to use your star tracker and DSLR to take amazing images of nebulae and galaxies.  The course is broken up into 12 main modules, one for each of the objects we'll cover.  For example, let's say you want to photograph the Orion Nebula.  I'll show you where the Orion Nebula is in the sky, what time of year it will be visible, how to find it once your on location, what camera settings work best, and how to edit the photos from start to finish!  We'll follow this same process for all 12 objects!

The Deep Space Course also includes multiple "Challenge Peter" tutorials, where users send in their own photos.  I'll take you through some of the unique challenges these photos present, and show you how to deal with them.  There are also different modules for Troubleshooting, Auto-Guiders, Post-Processing, On Location Setup, and more!

Star Tracker Courses

The Star Tracker Courses were designed to teach you how to use your star tracker for both wide-angle Milky Way photos and Deep Space astrophotography.  I currently have full courses available for the iOptron SkyGuider Pro, iOptron SkyTracker Pro, Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer, MoveShootMove, and Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer Mini.  Each course is broken up into 5 main modules - Planning, Camera Gear, Camera Settings, and On Location. 

The Planning module will teach you how the night sky works, and what to watch out for before you plan a Milky Way photography trip.  There's a lot to consider, including light pollution, regional weather patterns, what gear you'll need, and what time of year works best.  I'll also explain all of the different camera settings, and how to choose the correct aperture, shutter speed, and ISO depending on your camera gear and shooting style. 

Most importantly, I'll teach you exactly how to setup your star tracker and use it correctly in the field!  As you know, the star trackers don't come with clear instructions!  My main goal with the Star Tracker Courses was to clearly demonstrate how to use them!  Once you make it through the On Location videos, you'll be ready to head out into the field and start taking your own incredible photos!  If you have the SkyGuider Pro or Star Adventurer, there's even a full module on how to use an auto-guider.  If you intend to photograph deep space objects, an auto-guider can have a massive impact on your star tracker's accuracy!

Astrophotography Post Processing Course

The APC has over 12 hours of tutorial videos that will teach you how to edit your astrophotography images.  The main focus of this course is blending photos together.  For example, I normally take a 4 minute foreground exposure and a 4 minute tracked exposure for the stars.  Once I have both images, I can create a high-quality and noise-free image!  However, I need to cleanly blend the two together.  This can be very difficult, especially if you have trees in your foreground!  Throughout the course I will show you multiple techniques to cleanly blend any photos together using Luminosity Masks. 

We'll also do multiple full-length workflows that are geared towards advanced users.  I'll take you through my entire process, from start to finish.  Along the way I'll show you a ton of Photoshop tricks, and explain my thought process on crafting the final image.  There's even a "Beginners" module, which will teach you the basics of Photoshop, Camera RAW, and Bridge.  This will help you get comfortable with the various applications before we dive into the more advanced tutorials.

The APC also includes multiple deep space workflows, although if you're interested in that I'd recommend my Deep Space Course instead.

Star Trails Course

To be honest, star trails are pretty easy to do!  Set your camera to take 400+ images, sit back, and relax!  Once you have your photos, you can stack them on the computer and create your star trails image.  However, there are a lot of little things to learn - how to set an interval properly, which camera settings work best, how to remove planes, dealing with gaps in your trails, how to utilize the full moon, and much more!  The Star Trails Course is broken up into two main modules - On Location and Post Processing. 

The On Location videos will explain how to setup your camera and lens, how to set an interval in-camera or with an external remote, which cameras settings will work best, and how to find an interesting composition with your stars.  Once you know how to take your photos, we'll head back to the computer and start our editing workflows.

The Post Processing videos will go through multiple workflows, and explain how to use the different photo stacking applications.  For beginners, we'll use Sequator for our star trails photos.  This application gives excellent results with an easy-to-use interface.  For more advanced users, I'll teach you how to use Photoshop to create a clean star trails image, without planes!  We'll also fix some of the common problems you might see in your star trails images.
