When this course was created, membership was incremental as courses were added and it did not have access to all guides. We feel that investing in the course is as important as buying a telescope or mount. In 2024, we decided to drop the price to the original membership cost of $349, and implement yearly dues.

 

 We will continue to update and add new materials to the course over time, so your astrophotography library will keep growing as long as you stick with us.

Reviews

"One of a kind! ...I had always wished there was an all-in-one class or course to help lay it all out in the same way I have learned my other photography skills. It is very informative and well put together, covering everything a beginner would need to know. Highly recommend."

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's the difference between this astrophotography course and others?
    The Ultimate Bundle grants access to ALL courses and processing guides, and comes with perks - an exclusive and uncommon feature in most astrophotography courses. The two other bundles offer access to just the course lessons or just the processing guides depending on your needs. This allows members to enjoy access to the materials they prefer to learn from. All bundles are updated when new learning materials are added. Members can enjoy the additions for the time they remain actively subscribed.
  • Why did the Galactic Course change?
    Previously, Galactic Course membership fees were incremental as more content was added. However, over time the price became very expensive. This conflicted with Galactic Hunter's views on how accessible astrophotography should be, and so, a decision was made to restructure the Galactic Course. This change reduced the cost for access to course materials. Memberships are now sold as bundles, which offer access to all or specific categories of course materials. These new memberships have yearly dues that members to pay to retain access, and it supports the course's growth and mentors' effort to create new content for the course. Instead of a high one-time membership fee, you can now choose what level of access you want for a lower cost and pay yearly dues for as long as you want.
  • Why does the Galactic Course have yearly dues?
    The Galactic Course is a growing library of astrophotography content. As such, it takes tremendous effort to curate lessons, as well as write, film, edit, and revise content to complete the end product. Yearly dues support the growth of the Galactic Course and mentors' work in creating new lessons and guides. It is also how members maintain access to course materials each year. The cost of yearly dues includes any updates when new course materials drop throughout the year. Exception: Members of the original All-In-One Galactic Course The only exception to yearly dues are members who signed up before the new structure of the Galactic Course was implemented in May 2024. These members are automatically grandfathered into their memberships as originally advertised (lifetime membership with updates) and will continue to receive content updates without paying yearly renewal fees.
  • What happens if I don't pay my yearly dues?
    No matter the bundle, members are subject to yearly dues in order to retain access to the Galactic Course. Otherwise, they will not be able to access the content. The cost of the bundle includes the first year's membership. After the first year is completed, a member is not obligated to pay their dues if they wish to stop learning with the Galactic Course.
  • If I had access before, can I get it back?
    Yes, non-active members can regain access by paying the yearly dues. You will not need to pay for the price of the bundle again. See each bundle for the yearly dues amount.
  • What if I only want a specific course or want a specific guide?
    You can purchase specific course lessons or processing guides separately. Only pay for the course materials you want to learn from. When you purchase individual course materials, you retain access and receive updates, however, buying several materials separately may be more costly than a bundle so be sure to weigh your options. Visit the Galactic Course website to search individual course lessons and processing guides. While there is no obligation to buy the Ultimate Bundle, the biggest benefit of investing is getting access to all course materials and processing guides, plus perks!
  • Will I have access to the course forever?
    Members can enjoy access to Galactic Course materials for as long as they want, so long as they pay their yearly dues. We consider the Galactic Course an investment as important as a telescope or mount. It is a resource to improve astrophotography skills. You can retain access for as little or as long as you like! People who have purchased individual course materials have lifetime access and receive updates as they occur. However, it may be costly to buy all course materials individually, which is why we created the new memberships. Exception: Members of the original All-In-One Galactic Course The only exception are members who signed up before the new structure of the Galactic Course was implemented in May 2024. These members are automatically grandfathered into their memberships as originally advertised (lifetime membership with updates) and will continue to receive content updates without paying yearly renewal fees.
  • How does support in the Galactic Course work?
    We receive a lot of emails and messages on social media each day from people seeking help with astrophotography. We do our best to reply to everyone, but it is not always possible. If help from mentors is desired, we prioritize these inquiries (along with contact from Patreon members) to provide the best support we can.
  • Do I need a telescope (or gear) to use the course?
    Not necessarily. Some seasons focus on astrophotography with a telescope, but you don't need a telescope or gear right out the gate. Rushing into making a purchase is not what we intend to teach. We encourage following along before making an expensive purchase that might later be regretted. For guidance on what gear you should get, check out our blog post or invest in a course lessons bundle option to get access to the Deep-Sky course - which outlines how to choose the best gear for you. A note from the Galactic Course mentors: Consider learning how to use the telescope, nurture these newfound skills, and learn the "why" behind astrophotography concepts before actually imaging. In this way, the course is still helpful even to those who do not own a telescope yet. Future content may not necessarily use telescopes, so getting the course before you own any gear pays off and saves you the headache of paying for things you might not ever use!
