Today was the first day of the 2009 Advanced Imaging Conference. Once again I am impressed with the conference, not only is it well run, but attendees are great; approachable and knowledgeable. This year I was speaking at the conference with my colleague Alan Erickson.
I had a chance to wander around the exhibition and ogle all the huge telescopes.
Ah if only I had a place in a dark sky location to put it.
I was momentarily considering building an observatory in my backyard, but our elevation is so low and the light pollution so high it hardly seems worthwhile.
I think this year I am going to give Lightbuckets a try.
Looking forward to all the talks tomorrow.
