Last weekend we were at CEDIC 2013 ( Central European Deepsky Imaging Conference ).

As usual, we had top notch expert people in their fields, sharing their experiences with the rest of us, the mortal astrophotographers. You can find the details on the agenda and the speakers here.

The attendees were from 18 countries all over the world.

I will talk about the agenda, lecturers, vendors and their products in due course but I want to start with Mr. David Malin.

He had 2 presentations on 2 different days. His performance was incredible. His attention to detail, his thoroughness in explaining the subjects and his humor impressed all of us.

Saturday evening, we had the conference dinner and we were so lucky that David joined us, 5 Turks :) It was a great honor and great fun to sit together and chat with him and learn a lot from him that evening.

Here are some photos from that evening
