Urban Astrophotography 102

December 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until January 27, 2022

Thursdays, 7 PM. Dec. 2, 9, 16; Jan. 6, 20, 27

Urban AP 102 teaches the use of Cooled CMOS Astrocameras and related software to electronically view and image Deep Sky targets. We emphasize techniques which make a wide range of Messier objects — Galaxies, Nebulae, and Globular Clusters — accessible even from light polluted Manhattan skies.  Our focus on dedicated astro-cameras and software like SharpCap and PixInsight is different from the DSLR oriented Night Sky Astrophotography Course.  We’ll show you how to use technology only widely available since 2015 – which has revolutionized backyard astrophotography — to unlock distant night sky wonders even from the city.
