We have scheduled another series of astro-imaging classes for beginners. The goal of the series is to give all the information necessary for the beginner to understand what equipment is needed, how to use it, and how to make good pictures with a digital camera.

Classes will be held at Clackamas Community College over 4 weekends (Saturday mornings). The classes will be similar to past classes but we have included a topic on imaging the eclipse. See below for schedule and topics.
