May ASEM Digital SIG Meeting

Dan Crowson

I’m sending this to the DSNM group because Rick Steiling is a member imaging from the shared (1M) building.


The May Astronomical Society of Eastern Missouri Digital SIG (Imaging) Meeting will be held using Zoom on May 19th, 2020 from 7 PM CDT until ? I’ve scheduled the Zoom to start at 6:30 PM CDT so people can join early.


Steve Boerner will start the meeting with a talk about club outreach efforts using EAA (electronically assisted astronomy).


Rick Steiling will spend a good hour or more talking about PixInsight processing while going over his first light New Mexico image of M82. Rick's presentation will be fairly advanced and include the following:


•    Alternate ways to make and perfect masks: AtrousWaveletTransform, the MaskGen script, and CloneStamp

•    Using MultiscaleMedianTransformation to control background noise on hard stretches.

•    Using HDRMultiscaleTransform to bring detail to images with wide dynamic range.

•    Using LocalHistogramEqualization to highlight galactic detail


Feel free to forward this to other people but please do not post it on a public forum or website.


I hope to see you virtually there.


Dan Crowson is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
