Electronically Assisted Astronomy

Electronically Assisted Astronomy (EAA) uses cameras take images through telescopes and display them on a screen. Software is used to stack multiple images over several minutes to build a picture and unlike astrophotography takes only minutes to display. The goal is to see fainter objects can we can see with our scopes and to allow us good viewing even in the city. We have quite a few members working on EAA. Here is a gallery of sample images to see what can be accomplished.
