The Galactic Course

Learn all aspects of astrophotography in one place.

The Galactic Course is a premium astrophotography course designed to help beginners get started and help long-time enthusiasts improve their skills.

 

Members of the course join with a one-time fee and get access to all course materials for life! Members also get fun perks, find community with peers, and receive support and guidance from mentors.

 

Learn all aspects of astrophotography through written lessons and videos with the Galactic Course.

Membership Pricing

Similar astrophotography courses tend to offer lessons as separate purchases. This forces newcomers to keep purchasing add-ons to continue learning. Generally, online astrophotography courses don't offer perks either, making the experience strictly transactional. We don't see it that way. We see it as a long-term investment.

The Galactic Course is a lifetime of astrophotography resources for a one-time payment.

Some lessons are available to purchase separately. However, these individual purchases do not come with perks or grant access to all content. A membership costs more initially, but you only pay once to get access for life.

Premium Membership Fee:​ 

  • Seasons 1-4: $579

  • Access to all content

Next Membership Increase:

  • Season 5 - TBD

Individual Lesson Pricing:

  • $199 - S1 Deep Space Beginner DSLR Pack

  • $199 - S2 Milky Way Bundle (Beg. & Adv.)

  • $79 - Star Trails Photography Pack

  • $79 - Time-Lapse Video Pack

  • $149 - S3 Star Trails & Time- Lapses Bundle

  • $149 - Season 4 - Remote Imaging

Note: Each time a new installment is added to the Galactic Course, the price for membership increases.

See the FAQ section for clarification regarding price changes.

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

Q - What's the difference between this beginner astrophotography course and others?

A - Other astrophotography courses sell content piece by piece forcing passionate folks to buy installments, and the Galactic Course doesn't. You have access to ALL content for one price. We also update and add new content, and members never have to pay more for it because it is included with a membership. We also offer perks, which is uncommon with competitor astrophotography courses. A purchase won't be the only interaction between us. Best of all, the Galactic Course has no annoying music, idle chat, or awkward pauses to keep members from learning quickly and effectively.

TL;DR - An All-in-One Membership provides:

  • All astrophotography lessons for one price

  • Updates and access to future content for FREE

  • Perks - competitors generally don't have them

  • No idle moments in lessons - learn quickly

  • Mentors who care about your progress

Q - Why does the price increase each time you add new material?

A - Each time a new season (a lesson centered around a segment of astrophotography) is added to the Galactic Course, the price for membership increases. This reflects the growth of course material available to users upon signup, and it supports us as we put significant physical and creative effort into creating new lessons for our members' resource library. 

To get the lowest price possible: become a member as soon as you can. This is the only method to get access for the lowest possible price, which is the current price of membership. When the next update is available to the public the price will increase. 

Q - Do I have to buy the All-in-One Galactic Course if I only want to learn a specific lesson?

A - The biggest benefit of becoming a Galactic Course member is access to the step-by-step lessons curated to teach you all about astrophotography - ALL current and future material.

You do not have to buy the All-in-One membership to learn something specific, such as Milky Way photography (Season 2) - we have individual course packs available that you can buy separately at any time!

 

Note: Purchasing individual course packs does not give you full access to all course materials and they do not come with perks. We strongly encourage becoming a member over purchasing lessons individually.

Q - Will I have access to the course for an unlimited time? Like, always?

A - Yes! As soon as you become an All-in-One member, you have full access to the course and all the other perks for life! We won't ever ask you to pay anything after the initial one-time payment. That's why it's one flat price!

Q - How does "support for life" work?

A - 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.

 

Members of the Galactic Course get access to a private community Discord server. There, members can chat with a group of passionate peers for answers, or they directly contact us through the app! We prioritize these requests (along with contact from Patreon members) over non-member messages. Reach out, and we'll respond as soon as we can!

Q - Do I need a telescope to use the course?

A - Not necessarily. Some seasons, like Season 1 of the course focus on deep-sky astrophotography with a telescope, so a telescope is needed if one wanted to follow along.

 

Rushing into making a purchase is not what we intend to teach. In this case, consider learning how to use the telescope, nurture these newfound skills, and learn the "why" behind it before you actually start 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! Plus, getting in at the current price is the best way to go!
