A Geek's Journey into Deep Sky Astrophotography

by Dr Paul Montague, ASSA member


This talk will give an introduction to deep sky astrophotography, told from a personal point of view of the evolution of equipment and approach over a ten year journey. The presentation will be a random walk through miscellaneous aspects of imaging, where possible taking a science-oriented view. It will hopefully offer some useful information to experienced astrophotographers, while still being accessible to beginners or non-imagers curious to learn about this challenging hobby -- or who just like seeing pretty pictures!

Bio: Paul started as a researcher in mathematical physics, later migrating both into cyber security and to Australia. His interest in astronomy as a small boy in the UK was rekindled in his forties when he came to Australia and looked up at the night sky whilst camping. After starting out doing visual observations with a 10-inch push-to Dobsonian in 2008, Paul developed an interest in astrophotography in 2012. He specialises in deep sky imaging, both from suburban Adelaide and via field trips to dark sky sites.
