General Meeting and AP Group Meeting 7-9PM, Tues. 1/16 Lemoyne

Our January meetings will be held in-person (and via Zoom for snowbirds) next Tuesday, January 16 in Room 318 of the Science Center Addition (SCA) building on the campus of Lemoyne College, beginning at 7 PM. This month, one of our members, Bob Ostrander, will present a timely lecture entitled “Eclipses”. We will also vote to elect Doug Fenster to replace retiring board member, Greg Sigworth. After the general meeting, the newly-formed Astrophotography Group will meet from 8-9 PM to informally discuss tips and techniques of image processing. We’ll award this month’s winners of the Pretty Pix and Pixel Peepers awards for best artistic and technical images of this month. This month’s challenge was to process Bob Ostrander’s 30+ hours of dual narrowband data of the Flying Bat and Giant Squid nebulae in Cepheus. Experienced imagers, newbies and wannabes are always welcome. This is a positive learning and sharing experience for all. Winning images are featured on Facebook and our website for the following month.
