Dear all,

I'm glad to announce a PixInsight workshop that will take place in Alcanalí, Alicante, Spain, from February 1st to 7th. This workshop aims at giving a comprehensive operational/technical understanding of PixInsight to a small group of maximum 10 participants over the course of 7 concentrated working days. The workshop will take place in a private, mediterranean villa, where we will all sit around a dining table and immerse ourselves in processing data.

Participants will bring all their own unprocessed data sets which will be processed during the week. The workshop will be also centered in several examples which will be worked from start to finish. The seminar will allow participants an in-depth view of PixInsight, from a beginners level to an expert level, with the goal of having a total immersion in the process of the image creation. This workshops also introduces a new documentation for the attendees.

For more information about the workshop, please visit the dedicated webpage at pixinsight.com:

Due to its singular characteristics, we are limiting this workshop to 10 seats.

This workshop is being sponsored by Pleiades Astrophoto and the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Valencia.

See you in Alcanalí!
Vicent.

Hi all,

We finished today the fifth day of the workshop. We finally started to work with narrowband data after four days working on image calibration and LRGB techniques:



Half of the time of the workshop is dedicated to user images, so they process their own data applying the reviewed techniques with my guidance. Here you have three results from the third day of the workshop:

Best regards,
Vicent.

Vicent, this workshop was revolutionary in several ways. We learned so much in such a short time.

I recommend this workshop to every astro imager. It was the  best investment I made in recent years. Instead of upgrading your equipment continuously, upgrade yourself :) You will be surprised to see the difference it makes in your final images.
