I blogged about the North-East Astro-Imaging Conference (NEAIC) on Friday, and now Bob Moore, one of its organizers, has provided an updated schedule of events for the meeting.

Held April 26–27 before the Northeast Astronomy Forum (NEAF) in Suffern, New York (at the Crowne Plaza Conference Center), NEAIC will bring together a couple 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.

The schedule now includes the following first-day activities: Astronomy magazine Contributing Editor Tony Hallas describing photo processing; Stephen Ramsden on solar imaging; Ron Diiulio on introductory astroimaging; Tim Puckett on Apogee Instruments; Jason Cottle on Astrotroniks Mount Service; Neil Fleming on a subject TBD; a presentation by Celestron; and Robert Reeves on high-resolution lunar imaging. Day 2 will feature talks by Chris Go on high-res planetary imaging; Doug George on Maxim DL; Jerry Lodriguss on a subject TBD; Fabian Neyer on mosaic image processing; and Douglas Arion on calibrating images.

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!
