Definitely interested

The only thing that would keep me away is if it clashed with my grandaughter's wedding.
Photometry and narrow band astrophotography are areas I am taking up this year and Pixinsight is a program I will be acquiring. I would be keen to know if routines such as background neutralisation and curves transformation modify the background data or just the way its presented on the output device (screen or printer).

The only operation that modifies the screen appearance of an image and not the underlying data is a screen stretch (ScreenTransferFunction). The other processes modify an in-memory copy of an image. Hope that answers your question?

Sounds like a great idea.

If Melbourne is a possibility I could probably get the school I teach at to come on board to provide the venue. Data projectors and internet access are no problem and we work in a cross platform environment.

We are very close to public transport - the train station is a two minute walk and there are buses that stop at the school. Also cafes etc for food are only a few minutes walk. I'd have to check on prices for accommodation in the area but it is available.

Timewise it would have to be during the school holidays if you wanted it during the day. I'd love to come to Sydney for it but depending upon the dates it could be problematic.

As Rick said. But don't worry about losing your original data. There are multiple ways of avoiding this. Also, you can preview the effect of most processes before making the real change.

Thanks Rick, Geoff. That does answer my question. I hope the seminar goes ahead.

Count me in, and in terms of logistics I could provide the Audio Visual for it at a heavily reduced rate (its what I do), with in reason of course. I wouldn't be looking to make money just cover the costs.

I wouldn't think you would need more than a screen a data projector a pa system and a lapel mic, pc audio connection and a blue tooth mouse.

let me know if you need any help in that respect.

Thanks
Sandy

Come to think of it I might even be able to get a reduced rate on the venue as well. Contact me off line and we can discuss the requirements.

Nothing more definite than early Feb at this stage, David.

Cheers,
Rick.

Vicent seems keen so I think it is likely to go ahead. Yes, it would be a weekend event.

Hi Rick

I emailed Vince with some questions on his requirements and he responded but I never got any responce to my reply. I followed up last week with another email and still haven't heard back.

If you are in contact with Vince can you ask him if he got my emails?

Thanks
Sandy
