For some, this will be the first time you are close to truly dark skies. Not only that, you will be in the perfect spot to experience a total solar eclipse. I know I will be taking advantage of my time here to image the daytime sights, the night sky and the total solar eclipse. This is a great opportunity to experience the Milky Way in all its grandeur and take home some amazing images of your own. You can also take some interesting images during totality and partial phases of the eclipse with a camera and tripod. In my talk we will discuss focusing, camera settings and ideas for images for both day and night imaging.
Terry Mann wants to live in a world where skies are clear, nights are long, and the stars look like diamonds on black velvet. As an astro-imager, her images have been featured in galleries, magazines, television, and websites such as Spaceweather, Space.com, and the Smithsonian Institute. She has given workshops at Sally Ride Science Festival, and led various workshops on night sky imaging. To increase interest and raise awareness of astro-imaging and the night skies, Terry has made many presentations to local schools, parks, and various organizations. When she’s not packing her camera and looking for clear skies, you will find her spending time with family and friends, walking her dog Tater, or more specifically Tater walking Terry, or pulling her hair out trying to figure out that new software package. She has served as Vice-President and President of the Astronomical League, Co-Chaired Astrocon at Bryce Canyon and is has been a Solar System Ambassador since 2002.
