Photo of the Month for July, 2016
Hydrogen in a bubble of Oxygen - The Crescent Nebula
© 2016 Eric Marlatt
This image is another attempt at narrowband imaging with a hydrogen-alpha filter and oxygen-III filter.
Narrowband filters out much of the light pollution and allows for imaging when the moon is up,
the individual frames to complete this image were taken with the moon 75% to 100% throughout the last month.
This was shot through an Astro-Tech 8" RC with a QSI683 camera with Astrodon 5nm filters,
pre and post processing done solely in Pixinsight.

Title: "A Brief History of Astrophotography"
Speaker: Dr. Klaus Brasch
Due to circumstances outside of anyone's control, the speaker and subject changed for the meeting. The speaker was Klaus Brasch and the subject was Daguerreotype to Digital : A Brief History of Astrophotography.
Klaus always comes through when necessary and his subject always lives up to our best expectations.

Moon at the Lowell Observatory Steele Visitor Center Auditorium (6:45 pm - 8:00 pm., unless otherwise
noted) followed by refreshments, informal discussion, and observing. They are open free to the public.
