• March Meeting: Our guest speaker for March is Ken Naiff. Ken grew up in Sussex, England, in a countryside peppered with primroses and bluebells, and watched orbiting Sputnik through a small telescope. This was the beginning of his life-long interest in astronomy. After a highly successful 26 year technical career in semiconductors, being awarded 7 U.S. patents, and leading the effort to convert analog television systems to digital, Ken moved to Arizona in 2004 to pursue his passions for astronomy, art and technology combined into one challenging endeavor…astrophotography. Ken hopes his images will provoke questions, so that people can gain insight into the beautiful and awe-inspiring objects that await discovery and are just beyond our naked eye’s grasp in the star-studded Milky Way above. Ken’s work can be viewed at www.DarkSkyImagesByKen.com.
|• Bring Prints And Image Files : At the March meeting, we will continue the display and discussion of members' fine prints; please bring up to a MAXIMUM of 4 of your best prints for that meeting segment, along with a MAXIMUM of 6 jpegs of other images for the video projection segment of the meeting. The theme for the March jpeg image show is "funky", so look back at your files and send in your best images! Please send your files (jpegs, sRGB color space) for digital projection to the club email address by attaching named image files to the email (put your name first, then the picture title, in the jpeg filenames). And please downsize your files so that landscape format images are about 1280 pixels in width, and portrait format images are about 800 pixels in height.|
