I’m sure Startools developer Ivo Jager  @jager945 may be up for showcasing the excellent Startools 1.7 maybe .

+1 for a talk from Ivo about Startools - seems only fair as there have already been talks for pixinsight, affinity, APP and Photoshop!

In the months leading up to COVID, I gave a couple of public talks on gravitational waves. I don't know if a non-maths talk on what's below would be interesting or appropriate.   Gravitation

I would be happy to give a talk at some point on my PhD thesis, though would need a few weeks notice to prepare! My research was on the intergalactic medium (IGM) and it's relationship to galaxies. I

I've contacted Jasem but not heard back, is there anybody else who could give a talk on INDI, Ekos/Kstars etc..?

What would you want covering and in what format - it's the sort of thing where some form of real time screen capture / streaming would be incredibly useful.  My knowledge of Zoom is limited though having managed to avoid it for pretty much all of lockdown :) . Is it possible to share screen images etc?  I am happy to try and put something together covering the basics - installation, initial set up etc...

Jasem is THE man behind ekos/kstars. The only other developer who comes to mind would be Radek Kaczorek, RadekK on sgl. He's the developer of astroberry.

I would be happy to give a talk at some point on my PhD thesis, though would need a few weeks notice to prepare! My research was on the intergalactic medium (IGM) and it's relationship to galaxies. I used high resolution spectroscopy of quasars from the Hubble Space Telescope and ground based observatories to map the location and dynamics of metal enriched gas in the IGM in and around galaxies at medium redshifts (z ~ 1). These observations were compared with state of the art simulations of the Universe produced with Durham University's supercomputer - the Cosmology Machine. This led to some new insights into the nature and consequence of feedback from active galactic nuclei (AGN) and supernovae, which shapes the evolution of galaxies over cosmic time.

I'm also happy to talk a bit about what life is like as a working astronomer and share some of my experiences visiting and working at world class facilities in the Atacama desert in Chile.

A general overview / getting started with EKOS / KStars would be a good starting point I think, you can share screen in Zoom and it works nicely.
