No telescope? No problem. In this 50-minute tutorial I walk through a complete astrophotography processing of Rho Ophiuchi data from Telescope Live’s One-Click Observations. I talk about the basics of using Telescope Live to schedule basic remote telescope observations with their robotic telescopes and then I jump into processing the raw FITS files from Telescope Live in the free and open-source astrophotography processing program Siril before bringing the Luminance and RGB images into Adobe Photoshop for final edits.
In this 1.5 hour live stream session, I walk though two edits of a large format astrophotography panorama shot from Trona Pinnacles California. This recording was buried in the archives and forgotten about for a year before I found it again. I thought the content in here was too valuable to not share so here it is finally for those who missed the live stream.Continue reading “Live Stream: Large Format Astrophotography Panorama Editing”

I just had a great time talking about all kinds of astrophotography topics with John Chidgey on the latest episode of the Pragmatic Podcast. In this nearly 2 hour episode, we discuss star trackers, near infrared h-alpha astrophotography, light pollution filters, focusing techniques and post-processing techniques like stacking.
