Dave Morrow, astro-photographer extraordinaire, shows us some useful ways he plans his night sky shoots. Dave spends most of the video showing you how powerful The Photographer’s Ephemeris is in planning for a successful shoot.

If you’re new to The Photographer’s Ephemeris, this is undoubtedly the most used photography planning tool out there, and for your desktop it is free.

The guys behind the software describe The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE) as ‘a tool to help you plan outdoor photography in natural light, especially landscape and urban scenes. It is a map-centric sun and moon calculator: see how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth.’

This is Part 2 in a 3-part video series for planning an astro photography shoot. I highly recommend you visit his Youtube channel and check the other videos out.
