The SFAA hosts distinguished guest speakers who are leaders in the fields of astronomy, physics and related disciplines and they present to SFAA Members the latest developments from cutting-edge scientific programs.

If you would like to be able to capture images of celestial objects using a telescope and don’t have special astrophotography equipment, or do have equipment but would also like to have the option of being able to capture images quickly and easily on the fly, SFAA has you covered. Please join us on March 15, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., when SFAA will welcome Michael Weasner for a fascinating deep dive into the amazing capabilities of ordinary cell phones for inexpensive, ultra-portable, and surprisingly realistic astrophotography. A long time amateur astronomer and prominent dark-sky advocate, Michael not only has extensive personal experience with smart phone astrophotography but has also written and lectured widely on the subject. The lecture will be presented via an interactive Zoom meeting with opportunities for questions and answers.
