January 2020 club meeting

Held on 16th January 2020

On the agenda…

Presentations were given by:

  • Ian Holloway on the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer which is an equatorial mount used in astro-photography.  A camera is attached to the mount and the mount then rotates at the same speed as the earth’s rotation allowing for longer exposure times on a fix item in the sky (eg Milkway).  
  • David Ridgers with images taken at Mount Field – Tarn Shelf.  The images were taken during winter months with good snow fall and ice forming on the tarns.
  • Wayne Wagg’s images depicted his photography interest – portraiture.  Wayne is a member of the Portrait Interest Group and also undertakes photography on behalf of variious Theatre Groups.
  • Jan Perkins images touched a variety of subjects.

Andrew Fuller presented the Digital Challenge for January “Across the Summer Break”.
