3D Photography And Its Applications In Astronomy
May 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Anthony Jennings ventures o’er the divide from Manchester Astronomical Society where he sits as President, one of the oldest astronomical societies in the country. His 3D images have appeared on NASA’s STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) website. He has had photographs in Sky At Night and Astronomy Now magazines, and shown on Granada Television. The Late Sir Patrick Moore once said about his colour pictures of the Moon, “These images have been taken by the Apollo Missions” when in fact they had been taken from a back garden in Manchester.
