Deep Sky Imaging – 24th August 2006

At this evening’s Members Evening, Mike McRoberts and Chris Suddell gave us an illustrated talk on the business of “Deep Sky Imaging”. First Mike, who’d brought his portable kit along, talked us through its component parts in a usefully non-technical manner. Then Chris took us through the process of capturing and processing images. He talked about dark frames, hot spots, flat fields, narrowband filters, and quite a bit else besides. Along the way he gave demonstrations of the processing that can be done using AIP4WIN and Photoshop. He ended the evening in traditional fashion by showing us a selection of images he’d prepared earlier.
