Thursday, March 1, 2012 / 8:00 PM / Ars Electronica Center
(Linz, February 27, 2012) The focus is on astrophotography at the next Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, March 1, 2012. A documentary by internationally renowned, prizewinning filmmaker Erich Pröll takes a behind-the-scenes look at astrophotographer Dietmar Hager’s observatory in Upper Austria’s Mühlviertel region. And all those who’d like to take their own pictures of the starry night sky can get some practical instruction that shows just how easy it is even with not very sophisticated equipment. And as a follow-up on March 8 at 6:30 PM, Hager will hold a workshop to show you how use various computer programs to process your stellar imagery.
Dietmar Hager is a doctor, an astrophotographer and a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He has been involved in astrophotography for over 20 years, during which time his images have been published in professional journals and textbooks. In early 2011, he was named the Ars Electronica Center’s astronomical counselor.
