Completing the Picture

After taking Dan's basic course, this definitely completes the picture as far as planning, executing and editing Milky Way images is concerned. Really well presented, as always, and packed full of useful information. Another excellent course from Dan that I highly recommend to anyone interested in astrophotography and the Milky Way in particular.

Best practices and planning

I've been using Lightroom for years and learned more whating the 'post editing' videos than years of (under) using that program

Fantastic course!

I'm amazed how much I've learned with this course! It's very different from trying to learn with youtube videos. The course follow a very logical sequence, and really covers everything you need to master Milk Way photography. And it's a pleasure to watch by the way. Do yourself a favor, and buy this course. It's a masterpiece.

Great information and how-to videos

I have been interested in astrophotography for a few years and found it to be a highly technical field. The courses Dan put together have been an immense help in making sense of the why behind the techniques. One technique that was mentioned can't be over emphasized: practice!! There is no facet of this photography genre that is simple and intuitive. Practice, practice, practice!!!

Clear, concise and thorough

Pretty much everything you need to know, from kit, to in-field techniques though post-processing. All well explained and presented.
