The Astroimaging Group is open to all LVAAS members, and members in good standing of other astronomy clubs, who have an interest in astrophotography. Prospective new members are also welcome.
The purpose of the group is to provide a forum for the exchange of information about all aspects of astro-imaging. Experience in astrophotography is not required for membership.
Meetings are currently held monthly, at the South Mountain location, at 7:00 PM on the Thursday closest to the full moon.
Meetings are not held during the summer months of June through August, Check the online calendar of this website for exact meeting dates or changes to the schedule.
A typical meeting might include a program or discussion about:
1) equipment, such as telescopes, mounts, cameras, guiding set-ups etc.,
2) data acquisition and guiding software,
3) pre and post data processing techniques, and
4) any aspect of astrophotography.
From time to time, as the need arises, seminars, such as the popular “An Introduction to Astrophotography” is offered to beginners, or those considering becoming involved in astro-imaging.
Guest speakers are also scheduled from time to time.
To view astro images taken by LVAAS members, go to the Media Gallery section of this website.
