Aaron is joined by Alan Dyer and we get to nerd out about a CURRENTLY VISIBLE Comet in the night sky – Comet Wirtanen! Now this is not a Halley’s comet with a tail, but you can see a very distinct blue/green orb in the night sky if you get out there. Take advantage of this opportunity now!

Astrophotography from the Great White North!
Alan hails from the North, beyond the Night’s Watch of Montana. Alberta, Canada, that is. He experiences the challenges of Milky Way Photography when the season brings weeks without full darkness yet still has the majesty of amazing auroras! Alan can go out can capture the Milky Way Core in the south and then look north and capture an amazing Aurora!
The aurora has led Alan to doing more and more timelapses, so we get into specifics on processing and come away with some great processing program tips! One that I expect to use right away!
