Richard Wright  / Software Bisque 

6:30 p.m. — Embedded imaging: The future of astrophotography

Brief Summary:
The world of Astrophotography is being invaded by “The Internet of Things”. Small, but powerfully flexible computers such as the Raspberry Pi are making inroads in education, industrial automation, and embedded device control in dozens of industries, and even our homes. Astronomy is no exception. An embedded computer is a computer that “disappears” into the device it is controlling until you no longer think about or are concerned with what kind of computer or operating system is behind your “smart appliance”. How long before your laptop disappears behind your imaging workflow? That transition has already begun.
Bio:
Richard S. Wright Jr. is the Imaging Evangelist and a Sr. Software Engineer for Software Bisque where for over a decade, his focus there has been graphics and cross platform technologies. He is currently responsible for Software Bisque’s mobile products and cross platform imaging solutions. A frequent contributor to Sky & Telescope magazine and astrophotography webinars, Richard also authors a monthly Sky & Telescope Blog “Imaging Foundations”, and has written a book, “The Evening Show, Revealing the Universe Though Astrophotography”. Richard’s image gallery is at www.eveningshow.com. Richard was diagnosed with an incurable case of the imaging virus nearly two decades ago. Ongoing treatment takes place primarily in Central Florida or at his dark sky site in South Florida.

Bird Watching @ Yurt Deck

Bird Watching @ Yurt Deck | Circleville | West Virginia | United States

Whether you are a seasoned birdwatcher or a casual observer you are sure to enjoy one of our two birdwatching sessions. Don’t miss this opportunity to see what West Virginia has to offer this time around. It will be later in the season and we expect cooler-climate populations to delight us with a visit.

Birdwatching sessions will occur Saturday and Sunday morning right after breakfast, weather permitting.

Bring binoculars if you have them. We will be walking through some uncut grass, so shoes (boots) that can withstand some dew may be a good idea.
