Faulkes South 2-meter telescope remote imaging session

ALCON 2011 attendees will have the opportunity to help select from a list of DSO’s an object to image using the Faulkes South 2-meter telescope located in Australia. This telescope is part of the Las Cumbres Telescope system that is devoted to education and research. We will be imaging one object over the two hour period, operating the telescope remotely via the internet. We will capture multiple images of the object using a variety of filters including RGB, H-alpha and OIII. Attendees will have the opportunity to access these files anytime after the imaging session and practice their own processing skills on the data collected.

Those interested should meet at 8:00 am to determine imaging target, exposure times for filters times , etc.  Imaging session on the Faulkes telescope will begin at 9:00 am.
