Keywords: Astrophotography

Held on: Nov 18, 2015 (Wed) at 07:30 PM to Nov 18, 2015 (Wed) at 09:00 PM

Overview

Former SAS President Denis Janky is a long-time visual observer who has been dabbling with astrophotography since early 2014.  He uses a Mallincam Universe color CCD camera with an Obsession dobsonian telescope.  The Obsession has a tracking system, but is designed for visual observing.  The Mallincam has capability for real-time observation on a computer screen and is also a full-fledged color CCD camera.  Denis plans to discuss his setup and show how he acquires images.  He will also show (but without details) the results of several processing steps using Pixinsight software.
