CCD Imaging Course (CHOICE)
Posted: March 2, 2012 - 3:31pm
We have opened registration for a CHOICE course on CCD imaging to run May 1 - May 31. This course will describe how to and why we need to calibrate photometric images. It will cover techniques for bias, dark, and flat fielding. A wide variety of user scenarios will be covered including tips for calibrating in poor observing conditions, with older equipment, different software types, etc. The content of the course will be based on chapters of Arne Henden's new book on CCD photometry. Access to a CCD camera and your own FITS images is required (AAVSONet images will suffice). This is an ideal course for new CCD observers. The class will be limited to 15 participants. Registration can be done via the online store page here.
