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. See below for schedule and topics. Please note that we have reserved a larger room this time and it is located in the Pauling Center (Room 101) at the south side of the campus.

You can register at this link. The fee is $20 total. For those that register, email reminders and updates will be sent out. There will be handouts for each session.
 
Send me an email at membership@rosecityastronomers.org if you have questions.
