Jan 2019: The role of non-imaging cameras in cutting edge astronomy
4 January @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Talk by Dr Andrew Dennis, Director of Product Management at Andor Technology.
When we think of Astronomy we think of beautiful Astrophotograpy images, but behind the scenes there are usually a vast array of “technical” cameras which ensure the telescope remains aligned, perform deep Astronomical analysis or produce details of the chemical composition of far off worlds. To make a Hollywood analogy, these cameras could be considered to be the Screenplay writers, Producers, Visual effects engineers of the Astronomy world, without these cameras the “lead actors” simply couldn’t perform.
