November Club Meeting and Lecture

Friday, November 4, 2016 - 7:30pm

Friday November 4th at 7:30pm, Leinhard Lecture Hall, Pace University, Pleasantville, NY 

“Astrophotography Image Processing with PixInsight.” Astrophotographer and WAA-member, Olivier Prache, will introduce the powerful image processing software, PixInsight, and its purpose. He will go through a digital color image development process using PixInsight to highlight how the tools function and how to use them.

Olivier has been watching the sky since the mid-1970’s and started imaging around 2003. In 2007 he built a roll-off roof observatory in his backyard mostly as a shield against car and street lights and to provide greater stability to the imaging train. He has been imaging out of that location since then and moved from a 4” APO refractor to his current 12.5” Hyperion astrograph.
