Are you interested in Astrophotography, but overwhelmed by the investment of time and money it can require? Come join us at our February club meeting to learn how capturing the Moon can be an accessible and rewarding experience for anyone. Club member and amateur astrophotographer Josh Palmer will give you some practical information to help you get started. Whether you use a DSLR, specialized CCD camera, or even a smartphone, you can create beautiful images of your own. As a bonus, Josh will also discuss some wonderful astronomy apps available on today's smart phones, which can help you locate and learn about your favorite celestial objects.
