OMSI ASTROIMAGING -
Astrometry and photometry are two ways to measure celestial objects. Astrometry is measuring the position of the object and photometry is measuring the intensity of the object. This workshop presented the various aspects of these measuring techniques for those who had no previous experience. The workshop labs took attendees step-by-step in making astrometry and photometry measurements.
This OMSI workshop was sponsored and hosted by Jim Todd.
There is very little that Richard Berry has not done in astronomy; Former editor for Astronomy magazine, co-author of books such as "The CCD Cookbook Camera" and "The Handbook of Astronomical Image Processing" and author of the "Build Your Own Telescope". His talks are always a treat to listen to and a valuable asset to the astronomy community.
Following an introduction to astrophotography in 2003, Tim has expanded his interest, equipment and skills to become a widely recognized premier variable star observer. He has reported more than 56,000 photometric observations from CCD images to the AAVSO as of September, 2007.
Tim is also an accomplished author of numerous articles in both amateur and professional astronomy publications, and boasts an impressive meteorite collection.
