Over the past 10 years, the Northeast Astro-Imaging Conference (NEAIC), held each year in Suffern, New York, has become one of the principal places where astrophotographers can learn a great deal from their fellow hobbyists. If you have any interest in imaging the sky, whether it be with simple camera and tripod or with sophisticated telescopic shooting, I really encourage you to go.
This year, NEAIC takes place just before its sister conference, the Northeast Astronomy Forum, on April 10 and 11, in the Crowne Plaza Conference Center in Suffern, outside New York City.
The speakers form an all-star cast of astroimaging: Jay Ballauer will deliver introductory imaging workshops; Doug George will talk about Maxim DL6
; Ken Crawford will speak on taking images to the next level; Jerry Lodriguss will describe secrets of planetary imaging; John Davis will talk about the art of astroimaging; Jason Ware will touch on autoguiding; Ted Blank will speak about the International Oculation Timing Association; Caroline Moore will describe her outreach observatory; and much, much more.
This is an important conference that anyone who is interested in imaging the sky should attend. I will be there covering the meeting for Astronomy
magazine, and I hope to see you there.
