Time: 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Venue: Kerr Grant Theatre

Location: 2nd Floor, Physics Building - University of Adelaide, North Terrace

Presented by Paul Haese

Have you ever wondered how to collect deep sky data while you sleep or even while you are watching TV? Are you tired of being out in the cold all night watching your equipment or those nights of getting up to check on your equipment and wondering why you are doing this at some awful hour? Do you really have to go to a lot of trouble? Paul Haese will provide a presentation on the various stages of remote imaging; ranging from the basics to full remote setup. This presentation caters for every level of DSO imaging, so please come along to see what you could be doing tonight.

Bio: Paul Haese has been imaging the night sky since the mid 1980s. In more recent times he has produced award winning solar system images in local and international competitions. In 2011 Paul won the Bill Bradfield award for his work in producing images of Jupiter which he submitted to the research program known as JUPOS. Paul has also been actively working on his deep sky imaging in recent years. His focus is on producing deep and detailed noise free images of the many objects in the night sky. He has two observatories south of Adelaide which he has automated so that he can collect data each clear night whether he is at home or away on a trip somewhere. This has involved an extensive learning curve of many programmes, mechanical issues and general bug hunting.
