David Malin Lecture

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 and Steven Armstrong at CCSSC.
