Pushing Back Your Final Frontier with the Mallincam Deep Space Video Cameras

Mr. Mollise will tell his audience how they can go deep into the Universe, see incredible amounts of detail, and do that without tons of expensive equipment and years of imaging experience.

“Uncle” Rod Mollise, a Contributing Editor at Sky and Telescope magazine, is familiar to amateur astronomers as the author numerous books and magazine articles on every aspect of our hobby. He also writes a long-running weekly blog that has become a familiar feature of the amateur astronomy landscape. He is most well known, however, for his books and articles on Schmidt Cassegrain telescopes, SCTs, including Choosing and Using a New CAT (Springer), which has become the standard reference work for these popular instruments.

When he’s not on the road speaking at star parties and astronomy club meetings across the country, Rod shares a rambling old Victorian home in Mobile’s Garden District, “Chaos Manor South,” with his wonderful wife, Dorothy, two cats and, at last count, twelve telescopes.
