Home » Astrophotography
We’re passionate about astrophotography, taking photos of solar system objects and distant galaxies, nebula, and supernovae. We will show you the ropes — from using a cellphone camera held to an eyepiece all the way to stacking long-exposure computer controlled multi-camera CCD and DSLR images and sophisticated post-processing techniques. Our photos are used in Aldrich outreach presentations and have been image of the day on various astronomy websites.
Bring your talents as a sketch artist and other media into the mix. The first astronomers and celestial navigators scratched star charts and constellations into rock & clay. Depictions of the heavens and celestial bodies span the range from art to navigation to mythology and religion, and perhaps most recently the science of astrophysics through spectroscopy.
