Webinar: “A (very brief) introduction to Astrophotography”

The other day I uploaded to my YouTube channel the full recording of the webinar “A (very brief) introduction to Astrophotography“, that I gave on the 3rd October 2020 for the online events for “StarFest 2020”, Siding Spring Observatory, NSW, Australia.

The abstract of the talk is:

The sky is open to everybody. Thanks to the advance of the technology, amateur astronomers are obtaining outstanding images of the sky, even from their backyards, using DSLR cameras and small telescopes. In this webinar I provided a very broad introduction to the basics of Astrophotography, from the best settings for getting the images using DSLRs and telescopes to how to process the data.

Please, note that I couldn’t go in deep in almost any aspect of Astrophotography, just providing some very global ideas, enumerating the techniques, providing some key tricks (focusing, stacking images, use RAW) and show some of my best astrophotos.

I want to thank Brad Tucker (RSAA, ANU) for the invitation to give this webinar, also thanks for being the MC for this.
