Hi,

I'm glad to announce three PixInsight workshops that will take place at the Tanque Verde Ranch in Tucson, Arizona, USA, from May 6 to 12 and May 16 to 22.

Starting on May 6th, the first workshop will be a combined beginner/intensive like the one we offered in 2015. This combined workshop will offer the user a more flexible opportunity to learn image processing. On the weekend an introductory workshop to PixInsight and the basic image processing techniques will be offered for up to 40 people. Following this workshop, a 5-day intensive workshop will review more advanced techniques in a fully personalized learning experience for up to 12 people. In order to fulfill the high demand of the last year, we are also offering a second intensive workshop on the following week, from May 16 to 22.

We have already sold 75% of the seats for the intensive workshops, so register as soon as possible if you're intested in attending. You can visit the workshop webpage for detailed info:

These workshops are being sponsored by Pleiades Astrophoto and the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Valencia. We want to publicly thank Bob Rieger for his help on the organization; we are making these workshops reality thanks to his collaboration.


Best regards,
Vicent.

I registered for the 1st weekend/intensive. However, other than the paypal receipt I did not receive any confirmation or info.

Will I be receiving additional information?

Not to worry.  I attended last year and had the same concern.  Info should come closer to time.

Any chance there is an opportunity for doing some imaging in the evenings? If so I may bring my rig down.
