Introduction to Deep Sky Astrophotography
November 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm UTC+5.5
YPS Saturday Online Meet | Nov 12, Sat | 5:30 PM IST | S2 E6
Astrophotography of deep sky objects is one of the most challenging and rewarding branches of photography. As is the case in many other forms of photography, it is not just the pictures you get at the end of the day (end of night in this case!). The whole experience of spending long hours under star studded skies and collecting photons arriving from thousands and millions of light years away has no parallel. It has created a lot of interest in India among astronomy enthusiasts as well as photography hobbyists in the last few years. This session is an introduction to this fascinating field that presents endless possibilities. As the cliché goes, this is a discipline where sky is the limit. Or should we say, even sky is not the limit!
About the Speaker:
Mr. Chandrashekar G
Chandrashekar is into astronomy since 1980s and has wide experience in making and using telescopes. He is active in popularising astronomy through talks, skywatching programs etc., at schools, colleges, astronomy seminars and even in the Bengaluru Planetarium.
He started his astrophotography journey with manually driven equipment that looks almost comical in today’s high-tech world. Over the years he has acquired some sophisticated equipment that makes the Astro-life a lot easier. He would be speaking on the basics of deep sky astrophotography along with some of his learnings from years of doing astronomy.
