Hill Country Astronomers Learn about “Remote” Astrophotography
Wednesday, October 31, 2012 • Posted November 1, 2012

One of the growing aspects of amateur astronomy is imaging or taking photographs of objects through a telescope. With the growing technology, it’s even possible to engage in this activity from a different location from the telescope – “remotely.” At the next meeting of the Hill Country Astronomers on Monday, November 5 at 7:00 pm, local member Ken Kattner will give a program on how he images celestial objects in this manner, using his observatory near Putnam Mountain northwest of Fredericksburg.

The Hill Country Astronomers meeting will be this coming Monday, November 5 at 7:00 pm at the Hill Country University Center in Fredericksburg. This local group of those interested in amateur astronomy from Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Harper, Johnson City, Blanco and the surrounding area meet on the first Monday of each month and periodically out under the night sky to observe through telescopes. All these gatherings and activities are open to anyone interested in learning about the night sky
