Gary is going to give us a talk showcasing the various methods for capturing the Sun as well as talking through his workflow and showing us lots of processing tips and tricks touching on SharpCap, Registax, Photoshop and AutoStakkert!. He will also be discussing some of the recent innovations in equipment for solar imaging.

Should prove to be a big attraction, there are many on SGL interested in our star.
They're sure to learn much from GP. I'm not a solar guy, but I will still be very attentive to what Gary has to teach us.

I am very much looking forward to this, I've been on a couple of courses with Gary and have learnt so much from him... He gives fantastic presentations and his work is so inspiring !!

A very informative and interesting talk by Gary.  Looking forward to it being posted up on Youtube so that I can start and stop the video on how to maybe image and process the Sun using my Lunt 50mm.

Thank you to Gary, Daz and Grant for running the show....

Best regards, Hadyn  - IOM

That was a really good talk. Thanks.

Gary mentioned how old Registax is, but I still use Registax 5 as I find that it works better for me than either Registax 6 or Autostakkert. Maybe it's just me.
