Advanced CCD Imaging Course – Herstmonceux
The talks and demonstrations presented a range of CCD image processing approaches and associated techniques for astrophotography. Presentations included: monochrome Ha imaging (John Evans), broadband and colour imaging (Nik Szymanek), PixInsight image processing (Nigel Ball), and narrowband and bi-colour imaging (Ian King & Nik Szymanek).
All speakers provided live demonstrations of their image processing work flow and it was fascinating to watch the differences and common elements in the approaches of four practitioners in the field of astrophotography. I particularly enjoyed Nigel Ball’s presentation which gave me a number of ideas about how to further incorporate PixInsight into my own narrowband image processing work flow.
