The December Utah Photo Safari meet will be this Wednesday, December 17th. Starting at 6:30pm, we're going to have a short course in astro-photography. We're meeting in front of the physics building in President's Circle at the University of Utah (125 S. 1400 E. Salt Lake City, UT 84112). From there we're going to the outdoor observatory.

Since we'll be outside, be sure to dress appropriately: gloves, jacket, hats, battery powered sockets; whatever you need to stay warm. Equipment-wise suggestions include tripod, long lens and a flashlight. No flashes will be allowed.

Canon owners have a special bonus: there will be telescopes available with Canon mounts to be able to get up close on some night-time sky objects.

The official announcement and discussion are on this Flickr thread.

Hope to see you there!
