CCD group,

In August a newly formed group will be having their first, to my knowledge, CCD imaging conference in the Northeast. This will take place fairly close to us, in Philadelphia. Information about it can be obtained below:

Here is some free information from Richard Bennion that was posted to the Paramount ME user group about CCD imaging:

Here's what one Paramount ME owner said about the above information:

Thanks for sharing this great presentation with us that were not able to attend the AIC.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a lot.

Wishing for clear skies in Ohio!

Take care,

Hello Shane,

Currently here at NMSkies are Richard Bennion and John Smith (both of CCDWARE). In my talk on Tuesday at the CCD User group I'll be sharing some GREAT insights to the software among other things.

See you at the Christmas party!

CCD Group,

The Northeast imaging conference just posted their line up of speakers and topics:

I am not affiliated with them. I'm merely passing this information on as it looks like an excellent group of speakers and topics, plus it will take place very close to us.

Thank you.

This is definitely NOT the imaging conference that is to be held in Philadelphia. The one for PHL is to be held August 11-13 and I believe it is being called something like Astro Imaging Conference. I haven't seen any more details about it though.

Held May 4th and 5th:

Held August 11th-13th:

It would seem we are being invaded with astro-imaging conferences all of the sudden!

Sorry for the initial confusion...
