Notes

Topic: "What the heck is wrong with this stupid thing!?": Tactics for troubleshooting under duress.

See description in notes section below.

This group meets to discuss imaging and processing techniques. No experience or special equipment required!

Meets second Tuesday of the month in the Red Barn Classroom at the Museum of Flight.

Astrophotography is an incredibly rewarding endeavor, but it is not without it's share of stumbling blocks. Losing data to troubleshooting can be incredibly frustrating, but the reward of working to solve those problems is boundless when your rig just "works." Jon will discuss some of the common issues and pitfalls users come across while imaging (including the staff at Cloud Break Optics), along with the clever tips and tricks used at the shop for identiying and resolving them. Finally, attendees can bring their own issues to the workshop to either enlighten the group on how they solved their problem, or ask the group for help in working one still hanging them up. This presentation is geared toward both beginners and advanced imagers alike, as astrophotography problems care not about your skill level :).
