Somewhere in this past year of lockdowns, comedian and author of Is There Anybody Out There? Dara Ó Briain decided to capture the cosmos for himself, attached a camera to his telescope and began photographing the night sky.

Join the host of Mock the Week as he talks to BBC Sky at Night Magazine Editor Chris Bramley about his new hobby, and shares his experiences of being a beginner at the start of the steep astrophotography learning curve.

They’ll take a light-hearted look at some of the frustrations that come with taking pictures in the dark, top tips for how not make your telescope an instant health hazard, getting to grips with image processing and those occasional times when faint photons of starlight stay in focus and make it into a finished photo.
