Mid-west Astronomical Imaging Conference
Held in Chicago, IL on June 20 - 21, 2008 at the Northern Illinois University, Hoffman Estates Meeting Center.
This was the second imaging conference that I have attended. I attended the conference with the intention of learning more about PhotoShop and hearing from Bob Pilz about his lunar imaging techniques. The conference trip was extended into a trip to see family in Michigan where I did get one night of imaging from northern Michigan using my Watec 120N camera.
East Coast Astronomical Imaging Conference
Held in Philadelphia, PA on August 11 - 13, 2006
This was the first imaging conference that I have attended. I attended the conference with the intention of learning image capture and processing techniques that would improve the quality of my planetary images. Although the conference emphasized deep sky imaging methods I was able to get enough from the conference to make the trip worth while.
These two slides pretty much sum up what anyone needs to do in order improve their astro images.
