Astronomical Imaging

Philip Perkin (AstroCruise)

I give talks on astronomical imaging, mainly to astronomical societies in the UK. The current talk is about the techniques I use to acquire astronomical images. It starts with the basics and progresses towards advanced high resolution imaging, with full illustrations at every stage. I am developing a further talk on post-processing of the images – a large and detailed topic with modern CCD cameras.

After the coffee break the usual announcements and members activities.
