Friday 18th May 2017 - Neil Creek - "Is it really that colour?"

8pm Friday 18th May we have our own Neil Creek with the latest in his series of astrophotography talks, this time on "Is it really that colour?"

That's the question I'm most frequently asked when showing my astrophotos to others. The problem is, it's not a straightforward answer! Colour and our perception of it is a tricky business, where colour is found in the night sky and what it means is also a very important part of both the art and science of astrophotography. So in this talk, I will try to unravel the complexity of colour and explain what's real, what's enhanced and what's false, and why each of those options is completely valid.

Members' Night is on every Friday night commencing at 8PM sharp (doors open 7:30PM). Guests of members are always welcome. Contributions of food to share for supper are always gratefully received and demolished! :-)


Please consider the neighbours and drive in and out quietly using low beam only, or better still, parking lights.
