Thanks to Jeremy for a facsinating talk at our February meeting last night. After a brief news update and discussion Jeremy covered the topic of astrophotography right from the basics of pointing a camera at the night sky and recording star trials to the very advanced and spectacular images Jeremy is now making with his own equipment. Illustrated with many images some of which have been published in astronomy magazines the talk was appreciated by everyone.
Sorry about the lack of posts on the blog for some time, I'll try and do better in the coming months!
Hopefully many of you saw the spectacular night launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour. If not check out the NASA launch website for great rocket-cam footage.
Our next meeting is Tue 23rd February and following Chris' space newsround I'll be talking about DSLR Astrophotography. If anyone has any burning questions they'd like answered then email me before the 23rd (or surprise me on the night). firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who has been taking pictures themselves over the last month or so is welcome to bring along their pictures on a USB stick to share with everyone.
