March 9: Dr. Timothy Pickering
“Open Source Astrophotography”
Speaker: Timothy was an active amateur astronomer as a teenager, who received his first telescope when he was 11, and built a 10” dobsonian telescope from scratch when he was 16. Timothy decided to pursue astronomy as a career when an advisor told him that if he went to graduate school in astronomy, he would get to use the largest telescopes in the world – and get paid to do it. He was right, and in the past 20 years he has made stops at the MMT Observatory, the Southern African Large Telescope, and the Space Telescope Science Institute.
