January CAS meeting

The next CAS meeting will be on Tuesday 29th January 2013, in the church hall as usual.

We will have news slot as usual, followed by tea and biscuits and then a presentation by local member Dennis Kelly on the subject of Lunar and Planetary Imaging.

Dennis will explain and demonstrate the process of recording images and processing them and will offer the audience a chance to work through the image processing stage using pre-recorded images.

All are encouraged to bring along video files they have captured of the moon or planets and Dennis will assist  in processing the images.

Similarly if anyone has equipment for observing or imaging that they would like assistance with please feel free to bring it along.  Dennis will also be on hand to "flash" any webcams if required and will be able to load Registax v6 onto anyone's laptop if they bring it along.

A simple "how to" handout will also be provided to help users get the most from Registax.

So come along and see how easy it is to produce good lunar and planetary images!
