Topics: Planetary Society Video, explaining image processing

Having suffered a brief setback at the hands (teeth?) of the neighborhood squirrels who chewed through my cable line last week, I finally prevailed in hosting the first in my series of classes on processing space images for amateurs this morning, while most people who were not working were probably watching the flawless launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis. Thanks to the ten people who showed up live for the presentation, and I hope to see you all on Thursday for the next one!

If you would like to see the recording of the class, go to the Space Imaging section of our website, to the Tutorials page, and follow the links to the WebEx recording, either streamed or downloaded. Before you do so, you will want to have either GIMP or Photoshop installed on your computer.

The opening is a bit rough -- one thing about working at home is that I sometimes find it very hard to make the switch from speaking with keyboard to speaking with my mouth! But I warmed up after a few minutes.

Send an email to blog at planetary dot org if you'd like to be on the email invite list for the next WebEx session on Thursday at 10:30 Pacific / 18:30 UTC.
