David Malin with AAS members Alan Cook, Ricky Wood and Scott Thompson
On Wednesday, August 5, 1998, Ricky Wood, Scott Thompson, Alan Cook,
Larry Owsley and Russell Whigham, traveled to the Coca
Cola Space Science Center, in Columbus Georgia, to hear a presentation
by famed astrophotographer, David Malin. He began the talk with terrestrial
photos to demonstrate how dark the skies are at the AAO observatory http://www.aao.gov.au/.
He then went on to show of the fruits of his labors, using tri-color photography
and describing his darkroom techniques. It was a unique opportunity to
hear from the master of astrophotography. It was equally good to see our
friends Carole Rutland
Steven Armstrong at CCSSC.
