"Astro-Image Processing 101"
Internationally known astrophotographer, author, and teacher, Warren Keller has the ability to reduce the difficult concepts of astro-imaging to the essentials and to effectively teach them to others. His video tutorial business, IP4AP.com (named a Sky & Telescope Hot Product), has given thousands of clients the world over, a quick start on taking their own great images.
In 2016 and 2018, he wrote the definitive book(s) on PixInsight, Inside PixInsight for Springer Nature (Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy series). The first edition of the book was Springer's top seller in 2016, and was also named a Hot Product by Sky & Telescope in 2018.
Warren is proud to have been published as an author and photographer in Sky & Telescope, Astronomy, Sky at Night, Astronomy Now, CNA (China), Amateur Astronomy, IDA's Nightscape, and many places on the World Wide Web, most prestigiously, NASA’s APOD. Three large format prints were chosen for 2012's Starstruck: The Fine Art of Astrophotography traveling exhibit, which opened at Maine's Bates College.
He was Atik/QSI Camera’s North American representative, and was a consultant to Celestron where he co-designed their AstroFX software. Warren has presented at the Advanced, the North East, the Midwest, RAW, and CAPS astro-imaging conferences, and was host and coordinator of SWAP in 2013 and 2014 in Tucson. In 2015, he was asked to the board of directors of the Advanced Imaging Conference, where he is VP of exhibitor sales. He continues to lead virtual workshops and provides one-on-one training in the art and science of astrophotography.
