DS102: Intermediate Deep-Sky Imaging

This course is intended for those who have already embarked on deep-sky imaging with their own equipment and now want to hone their skills to create images such as those seen on the New Forest Observatory website.  We will discuss in more detail than DS101 the choice of cameras, mounts and optical systems to maximise the image quality that you can capture from your imaging site. We shall also discuss image processing, data acquisition and data handling/storage in more detail.  The Intermediate Deep-Sky Imaging course runs from 10:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and a lunch is provided, as well as refreshments throughout the day.  You will also receive a copy of my Springer publication “Making Beautiful Deep-Sky Images” and a notebook and pen will also be provided for your note taking, although a CD of the slides presented during the course will be given to you at the end of the course.

There is parking for 6 cars at the New Forest Observatory and we are a 12-minute walk from Brockenhurst main line station.  We can provide transportation to and from the station if required.

Cost £150 including VAT for this full-day course.
