Event details

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.

Regular meetings are held monthly and are open to members and non-members. Admission is free and visitors are always welcome.
