Imaging the Sun and Moon

Post date: Mar 29, 2010 6:54:01 PM

OK, it's official. I've scheduled the Weldon Spring Interpretive

Center from 9:00 am to Noon on Saturday, April 3, 2010. We will have

a workshop on how to use a webcam to image the Sun and Moon. We will

have the Lund 60mm H alpha scope, one or more PSTs, one or more

ETX-125s with white light filters and one or more webcams adapted to 1

1/4 inch eyepiece tubes. We will have one or more laptops set up with

image acquisition software (K3CCD) and processing (Registax). I will

have CDs with copies of the free software for those who don't already

have it.

I say one or more several times meaning folks are encouraged to bring

their own equipment, too. The more the merrier. Contact me directly

if you want to show-and-tell something.

The workshop is free and open to the public.
