Dispelling the

Noted sky photographer Dennis Mammana


Above our heads each evening lies a universe of motion, excitement and color—much within the range of a simple camera and tripod. In this light-hearted and informative program, noted sky photographer Dennis Mammana dispels some of the most popular myths about shooting the sky, and shows why much of what you believe may be wrong. If you’ve ever aimed a camera skyward—or wish to try—this is one program you won’t want to miss!

For more than three decades, Dennis Mammana has delivered the wonder and mystery of the cosmos to millions around the world. He is the author of six books, hundreds of popular magazine, encyclopedia and web articles and, since 1992, has written "Stargazers”—the only nationally-syndicated weekly newspaper column on astronomy.

As an accomplished sky photographer, his stunning images capture the color, motion and majesty of the heavens, and have earned him a coveted membership in TWAN (The World At Night)—an international team of the world’s most highly-acclaimed sky photographers. You can enjoy an exhibition of his work at the OPT Underground Gallery in Oceanside through August 2, or visit him online at
