AstroImage 2006 Talks

For AstroImage 2006, the Orange County Astronomers is pleased to again bring you a strong lineup of speakers and talks.

The conference is kicked off on Friday evening with our Imaging Social, to let you meet your online imaging friends in person, see old friends, meet new friends, and talk shop with other imagers. You will be able to pick up your registration packets at this time.

On Friday evening, we will also again host a session aimed mainly at less experienced astroimagers. OCA member Alan Smallbone will present an introduction to digital imaging with DSLR cameras and several of the low-cost CCD cameras that have recently entered the market, such as the Meade DSI and the Orion StarShoot. The session is oriented toward beginners, but all imagers are invited to attend and provide tips and encouragement. We are also providing a simultaneous session covering intermediate and advanced Photoshop techniques applicable to astroimaging for more advanced imagers. The Saturday sessions continue the OCA's tradition of providing a quality lineup of speakers to advance the art of astroimaging. NOTE: The following listings are subject to change. The order of listings does not reflect the presentation order at this time.

On Saturday evening, well-known astrophotographer and image processing expert Tony Hallas will speak to us on the topic of Imaging for Print.

On Sunday morning, we are pleased to offer an optional special insider's tour of Palomar Observatory, hosted by Scott Kardel from Caltech. The 200-inch Hale telescope and at least one other telescope will be featured on this tour through this historical facility. The tour will be specifically geared toward the imaging that is being done currently at this observatory; Palomar is still doing world-class research because of its innovative imaging equipment and techniques.
