About the Eire Region

Welcome to the new page for our region.
The plan for the region is to get regular activities going, and to have more member meetings, including an AGM later in the Season. It is at the AGM where aspects of the structure and future of the region, including its name, will be decided by members who choose to get involved.

At the members’ meeting in September, we enlisted volunteers from around the country to help run some events around the country. We will be liaising with those local volunteers early in the new year to get started.

With a similar pattern on an annual basis, we are confident that the membership will be that of an active, healthy, viable region within 2 years, and growing steadily after that.

As events develop, we will be updating this site on a regular basis.

Online Talk Season Continues

Cradled In My Arms Natural Light Copy
Astro-landscape photography online talk with Rick Whitacre

Astro-landscape photography online talk with Rick Whitacre - 15th September, 7pm IST


Rick is a highly accomplished American astro-landscape photographer whose stunning work has been featured globally including at the Yosemite Museum in Yosemite National Park and the Royal Observatory Greenwich in London. Astro-landscape photography is the art of combining images of the night sky with earth-based foregrounds to create unique and compelling images.

Living in California, his passion is to create images that grab the viewer’s eye and compel them to explore the photographs in more detail, conveying the awe and inspiration he feels. 

Rick's exploration of night photography has taken him from star circles to images of the Milky Way and on to chasing meteors, comets, aurora and eclipses.

The discussion will include equipment and software requirements for successful astro-landscape photography and Rick will also talk about some of his favorite lenses and accessories.
