This is the subject of our meeting this month, Tuesday 9th February at 7pm. Our new member, Alistair Scobie, has kindly agreed to offer this as his presentation.
Alistair will cover issues like:
*What equipment he’s used and his reasons for selecting it.
*An introduction to the technical issues in assembling an astrophotography set up.
*Illustration of the system’s capabilities using images he has taken.
*And finally…… where do I go from here?
Alistair sent a lovely photo capturing his subject in an email but it lies beyond my IT know how to get it from email to appear as an image on this site, unfortunately. I’m sure Alistair will share this at the beginning of his talk however!
(March meeting. Please note this will take place on Tuesday 23rd March, not the second Tuesday as usual. Our speaker will be Howard Parkin from the Isle of Man Astronomy Society whose subject is ‘Ad Astra’. His talk will look at the spacecraft launched from earth that are destined to leave the solar system and found by forms of intelligent life in distant galaxies just possibly!) This will again be hosted on Zoom.
