Improve Your Astrophotography £15

With Mary McIntyre

Saturday 28th July – 10 - 12:30 at Tooley's Boatyard, Banbury


This 2 hour workshop follows on from the "Introduction To Astrophotography" talk. It covers how to stack astronomy images, and how to shoot calibration frames. It includes walk-throughs on how to stack Moon, Sun and deep sky images. Then it covers image processing in more detail, and how to get started using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
Mary has had a lifelong passion for astronomy. In 2011 she completed the Astronomy GCSE course, and in 2014 she completed the Open University Certificate in Astronomy and Planetary Science. She has been doing astrophotography for about 8 years and loves to photograph just about anything that is in the sky! In her spare time she runs the UK Women in Astronomy Network, and writes astronomy blogs and articles for several online magazines and her own blog page. Her astrophotographs have been featured on BBC Sky at Night, BBC South Weather and a Channel 4 documentary about British Weather. She has appeared in All About Space Magazine, and has also had one of her photographs used as the cover for a university text book. Every clear night she can found in her rural Oxfordshire garden with her camera!
