"Video Astronomy: The CMOS Revolution"
A Presentation by LVAAS
 Member and Astroimager Dave Moll


LVAAS member and astro-imager Dave Moll will present a program explaining the new trend in astronomy cameras: fast, low-noise, high-sensitivity CMOS "video" cameras that excel at both traditional imaging and "video astronomy". Video astronomy is a great way to share our hobby with others, especially those with "older" eyes, children who sometimes have difficulty lining up the image in an eyepiece, and others with mild to moderate visual impairment. It is a great way to discuss astronomical objects while viewing a live feed with groups large and small. In addition to their usefulness in video astronomy, the new wave of CMOS cameras, along with amazing new support hardware and software, makes astro-imaging of deep sky and solar system objects attainable and relatively affordable to many who may have previously been discouraged in this pursuit. Dave will be showing his ZWO system, and he will be joined by fellow LVAAS member Eric Loch who will show his Atik system. Please join us for this informative and timely talk.
