I'll be giving an all day workshop in the upstairs room of the Scopes and Space shop in Airside (directions), on Saturday the 26th of July 2014!
This is a free workshop starting at 12 noon and lasting approx. 5 hours. The workshop is intended for those wanting to learn about the Image Processing involved in making Deep Sky Astro photographs. I'll be discussing the equipment required (DSLRs and CCDs) and will explain how to take darks and flats, and how they are used to calibrate the Deep Sky shots. From there I'll run through the s/w processing of the stacked images to bring out the best of the data that was captured.
We'll show Levels and Curves, Smoothing, Sharpening, Noise Reduction, Gradient Removal, LRGB imaging, Layers, and Image clean up, as well as lots of tips and tricks.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own data that we can work with in the workshop. Most of the processing work will be done in Photoshop, with some steps processed in PixInsight, while the Calibration will be demonstrated in AstroArt 5.
Those who wish to attend the workshop should contact Scopes and Space to check for available places. (01) 890 2736, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The upstairs room has space for 30 people.
I'm really looking forward to this workshop on July 26th! Should be great fun - thanks also to Scopes And Space for hosting this exciting event!
