"Astrophotography, because you're staying up anyway"

Ever looked up at the night sky during observing, and wanted to take photo, but just didn’t know how to take the shot ? Well, we’ve all been there. In this talk, I will talk about why astronomers should not let good photons go to waste, why everyone with a DSLR should get their gears out and start taking photos. If you don’t have a DSLR, still do come along, there will be pretty pictures. And by the end of the talk, there is a good chance you’ll be brainwashed to spend two thousand dollars.
