Great! So you got some images, now what?

The dark of astrophotography is turning all the 'data' into amazing images.

We'll show what to do with taking the noise of images, stacking software and post processing. Advanced amateurs and professional astronomers work with images in FITS (Flexible Image Transport Standard) format.

Learn how to work with FITS, RAW, TIF and other formats using Photoshop and astronomy-specific programs like Nebulosity 4.


You will also be given a resource DVD of free images to help you develop your astro-imaging as well as some image files to practice on. Laptop preferred for this class.

New for this season is a bonus DVD of RAW data taken of various Lunar/Planetary/Deep Sky targets so you can start practicing processing images in the class.
