Astro Imaging Group

The Astro Imaging Group is a special interest group with astrophotography as the centre of its activities. The group uses digital SLR carmeras and/or dedicated CCDs. You do not need any imaging or optical equipment to be a member of the Group as anyone is welcome to 'come, see and learn'.  Members not only learn about imaging, but also about the different types of telescopes and how to use them, in a friendly and relaxed environment.

In addition to imaging in our private time, the group shares, learns and advances their skills at monthly meetings starting at 7.30pm. When the weather is favourable, practical sessions are conducted where members can share their knowledge and newer members can learn 'hands-on'.

The Group runs structured but casual 'courses' that takes members through from 'beginner' to whatever level you wish. To get a copy of this year's activities, simply come to one of the group's meetings and keep an eye out for our monthly column in The Bulletin. Current ASSA membership is a prerequisite to being a member of the Astro Imaging Group, however casual visitors are welcome. The Group also has non-public pages on Yahoo! Groups which is open only to Astro Imaging members.

For more information, please contact Neil Walter on 0418 805 182.
