Film vs. Digital – 23rd March 2006

Our second meeting at the Bonus Pastor School in Downham co-incided with a parents evening, so we met in a classroom upstairs rather than in the main hall. Our speaker was Robin Scagell, and he gave us a very clear and informative talk on the relative merits and disadvantages of film and digital image capture as applied to astronomy. He concluded that digital imaging usually has an edge but that there are still advantages offered by film, especially where the subjects are constellations and star-trails.
