Point, Shoot, Click: Easy Astrophotography

In this day and age, it’s incredibly easy to be an amateur astrophotographer, even if you do not own a telescope. In this workshop, we will demonstrate how to use the MicroObservatory, a free online robotic telescope network operated by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Participants will learn how to take celestial images and process them using the free online JS9-4L software. Viewers will also explore STEM careers which can be pursued through Utah State University.
