This forum is for the discussion of observations, equipment, software, and how to use Electronically Assisted Astronomy (EAA) efficiently to maximize the visual experience. EAA has become an important observing tool that assists in overcoming the adverse effects of light pollution and aids in sharing the experience with others at outreach events.
Posts with astronomical images must include:
The name and/or catalog number of the object(s) of interest in the text (preferable) or on the image. Preferable because the area surrounding an object may be of interest.
Additional information to illustrate your techniques and equipment used, to assist other members, is encouraged and appreciated.
Please note that post-processing of EAA images is not allowed under any circumstances. One can provide links to ones' post processed images in the imaging fora, your gallery on Cloudy Nights or from another website. This helps to maintain our focus on EAA.
Our view on post-processing is basically any enhancement process occurring after the capture software has saved the final image into a storage device. The key word being enhancement; image manipulation like cropping, zooming, rotating, annotating, inverting, and file size compression is deemed acceptable.
