Astronomy Imaging Workshop
January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Michael Petrasko and Steve Davies of Insight Observatory are returning to Cotuit Library to bring us another Astronomy Imaging Workshop, focusing our gaze on the skies of the southern hemisphere. This time around the guys will give us access to the third and newest edition to their imaging telescope collection, the ATEO-3. ATEO-3 is a Quasar 12.5″ f/9 Ritchey Chretien remote imaging system located in the dark skies of the Rio Hurtado Valley in Chile. Workshop participants will be paired up to choose deep-sky object to take an image of for later viewing and downloading. Steve, a licensed astronomy and physics teacher, will give a brief lecture on deep-sky imaging with the telescopes before image selection. Materials cost is $10 per person. Limit 24 participants; register at cotuitlibrary.org/events–activities or contact the Library.
