"Astrophotography From Film to Digital" - John Laning
Laning will give a history of the progress and evolution of astrophotography from the era of film to the current digital world, from his experience and perspective. Digital capture has given astronomers much more freedom and many options in their photography efforts, and Laning will explain the differences in working with the two mediums. To further illustrate, he will present some of the equipment he has used to produce his images.
