Imaging the Sun and Moon

posted Mar 29, 2010, 11:54 AM by James Roe
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.
