Capturing the Visible Universe in a Single Image

Talk by Charlie Bracken and Max Whitby
Charlie Bracken and Max Whitby spent over two years creating a single image that shows the entire celestial sphere in both RGB color and hydrogen alpha. In this talk, they will detail how they planned their approach, acquired the images, and processed the data. They will also use the image to provide a sense of relative scale for popular imaging targets and highlight some of the objects that stand out at this scale.
Charlie is an American astrophotographer and the author of several books, including The Deep-sky Imaging Primer. Max lives in Northumberland, UK, and he is a former producer with the BBC and founder of several publishing companies.
