Join us this Friday, March 10 for our members meeting! Our guest speaker for the evening is Kerry-Ann Lecky Hepburn and her topic for the evening will be “Night Sky Photography Under Adverse Conditions“.

As astrophotographers, we dream of clear and transparent skies with no light pollution, but in reality, we oftentimes don’t get that. However, instead of seeing poor conditions as a hindrance, we can learn to work with them in unique ways that may still result in producing some great astro images. In this presentation, I will share some examples of how I worked with these subpar conditions to produce some of my favourite images.

Kerry-Ann is a long-time friend of the HAA and has spoken to us on several occasions. She is a meteorologist and pilot by day — and an inspiring astrophotographer by night. Kerry-Ann is widely recognized, appearing on The World at Night (TWAN) and Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD), and she teaches workshops, too. See more of her work at

Observing Director Steve Germann will also be there with the March edition of The Sky This Month.
We will also be giving away some door prizes. Don’t forget that we gladly accept donations of food or cash for delivery to Hamilton FoodShare. Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated!

Doors open at 7:00 PM and the meeting begins at 7:30 PM. For those not able to attend in person, we will be livestreaming the meeting on ZOOM for club members and Facebook for all others (as long as the technology cooperates). The meeting will also be posted on our YouTube channel about 48 hours after the meeting.

We hope to see you there!
