This Month's Topic:
I'm excited to announce that local astrophotographer and eclipse chaser Rob Hawley will be back to present on his experiences designing and building his home observatory as well as his equipment and automation techniques. Rob will also be talking about his narrowband imaging techniques as well as his narrowband for stars method. Rob has been active in local astronomy and astronomy outreach since 2002. He is currently active in both the Fremont Peak Observatory Association (where he is Treasurer) and in the Peninsula Astronomy Society. Since 1999 he has been actively chasing the shadow of the moon attending every eclipse (except for 2003 in Antarctica). Along the way he has learned a lot on how to take photographs (and how not to take them).
The Imaging SIG meets roughly every month at Houge Park to discuss topics about imaging. The SIG is open to people with absolutely no experience but want to learn what it’s all about, but experienced imagers are also more than welcome, indeed, encouraged to participate.
