This month Jay Ellis will giving a presentation on Mosaic Processing using PixInsight.
Using the Mosaic technique the photographer can increase the final images FOV by stitching multiple smaller FOV overlapping images into on larger seamless FOV Image. PixInsight provide several Mosaic tools to make this task relatively easy.
This month I will presenting a presentation comparing DSLR vs CCD for Astro-photography.
With the availability of a wide range of commercially available DSLRs, there is a large community of imagers using DSLR. This presentation will try to describe some of the Advantages/Disadvantages of each type of camera with a goal of helping the novice Astro-photographer decide which avenue to pursue.
APSIG (Astrophotography Special Interest Group) is sponsored by the Texas Astronomical Society of Dallas, Texas.
APSIG meets once a month to share information and learn more about the art and science of Astrophotography --taking photographs of objects in the night sky such as planets, galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. Imaging these celestial objects requires special techniques and equipment, but are attainable by anyone willing to point their camera skyward. Come learn how!
Meetings typically include brief workshops and/or lectures, Q&A, and Show and Tell of recent images taken by our members. Want to know more? Please join us! Our meetings are open to the public. Watch his page for meeting schedule and location as well as special events.
Also, please consider joining our parent organization the Texas Astronomical Society (TAS). TAS also has monthly meetings and wonderful guest speakers, and is a great place to learn about astronomy and those celestial objects you want to image!
