**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
Are you interested in photographing distant galaxies and nebula in the night sky? Join astrophotographer Steve Ruhl for an introduction of getting that awe-inspiring image of the night sky.
Session 1:Introduction-We will look at the steps and an overview of what is required for a Deep Sky Astrophotograph.
Session 2:Equipment- We will do a deep dive into the equipment required to obtain an image. How much equipment do you need - what will work and what won’t for your photo.
Session 3:Finer Points- We will look at software, obtaining focus, tracking adjustments and other technical pearls.
Session 4:Constructing an image – How do you take 15 Gigabytes of data and reduce to an image that you can mount on the wall or share with your friends.
Prior to becoming an astronomer, Steve Ruhl had an ill-spent youth in a darkroom. He made the mistake of taking “Introduction to Astronomy” his senior year in college, changed major to physics, and took up astrophotography. After a career as a Computational Physicist and Software Engineer, he spent 10 years as president of the Battle Point Astronomical Association.
