Clear skies

Check the light pol­lu­tion and the weather be­fore you go, and pick a lo­ca­tion that will be clear of clouds and un­wanted lights.

Win­ter warmers

Wrap up warm. Your cam­era also feels the cold, so take a towel or hand warmers to wrap around the lens and avoid mist­ing.

Night vi­sion

Bring a pocket light, and make sure it’s red or has a red fil­ter. Us­ing a red light will help you keep your night vi­sion (see top left).
