About the General Meeting Presentation

The magnificent Orion Nebula once again graces the winter night skies.  In this presentation we discuss real-world examples of how to capture the Orion Nebula using a DSLR camera and lenses you may already own.  We will cover what equipment is needed, how to set it up for the best image, what exposure to use, and strategies for efficient capture. Post processing will be covered in a later presentation.

Robert is an astronomer and astrophotographer at the Insperity Observatory, and a regular presenter of astrophotography for the North Houston Astronomy Club.  He is a second generation professional commercial photographer, Certified Professional Photographer, and owner of PhotoVideoSound.com
