Calling all imagers to the North East Astro-Imaging Conference!

I’ve previously mentioned Astronomy magazine’s sponsorship and participation in the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) this coming April 28–29 in Suffern, New York. It’s the largest telescope show in the world, and it will be a must for amateur astronomers in the region. But I want to inform you about a two-day conference that precedes NEAF — the North East Astro-Imaging Conference (NEAIC). A premier event for astrophotographers, this meeting will feature talks and workshops by many of the world’s leading sky photographers and will be a delight for anyone who wants to take pictures of the heavens.

Held April 26–27, also in Suffern (at the Crowne Plaza Conference Center), NEAIC will bring together a couple of hundred dedicated astroimagers for a high-level meeting of the minds. Astronomy magazine is proud to be a sponsor of this event as well as of NEAF. Talks will include presentations by Don Parker, Kevin Nelson, Robert Reeves, Douglas Arion, and Astronomy magazine Contributing Editor Tony Hallas. Workshops will focus on introductions to astronomical imaging, an introduction to Meade LX800 imaging, and some topics to be determined.

I urge you to attend this great conference if you have any interest in astronomical imaging — presentations will cover beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Registration for the event includes all NEAIC activities, a continental breakfast, lunch, and a two-day pass for NEAF.

I hope to see many of you there!
