High Resolution Imaging with Amateur Telescopes

Adriano Massatani presents the golden rules of astrophotography

Nowadays, with an amateur telescope and the latest CMOS camera sensors, it is possible to capture high-resolution images that were unimaginable until a few years ago. However, it is necessary to follow some golden rules in order push the equipment at its limit: good optics collimation, correct magnification, specific post-processing programs and the use of the technique of the lucky imaging for “freezing” the atmospheric turbulence. As result, it is possible to achieve images with a resolution of 0.5” that is equal to the size of a golf ball 17km away.

Refreshments will be served

The usual donation will apply SCS Members: $2.00 Non SCS Members / Visitors $5.00
