Reminder for Astrophotography Special Interest Group Meeting

Posted 6 months ago

The Astrophotography Special Interest Group meeting has been changed for the month of July.  It will occur on Tuesday, July 18 at 7:00pm, as opposed to the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, July 11.  The Event page has been updated to reflect this change.

We will have a special speaker for this event.  Dr. Don Goldman of Astrodon filters will give a talk on narrowband filters and planetary nebula.  Don is the Founder and President of Astrodon Filters, co-founder of the Advanced Imaging Conference, recipient of the Clyde Tombaugh Award from RTMC, has over 30 APODs and is a popular conference speaker.  Narrowband imaging is possible and may be the only option from light polluted areas.  The advantages and use of narrowband filters will be presented. Planetary nebula, like the popular Ring and Dumbbell Nebula, are emission line objects that are well suited for narrowband imaging and their varied shapes denote their history and orientation to our line of sight.  Our Sun will produce a planetary nebula before it shrinks to a white dwarf. 

Please make note of this schedule change on your calendars.  Another reminder will be sent as we get closer to the event.  Thank you and I hope to see many of you there!
