Astrophotography: Treasures of Northern and Southern Night Skies


Saturday, October 3, 2015 - Thursday, October 29, 2015
All Day



The Somers Library will be having an exhibition of the astrophotography of Scott Nammacher, a Westchester based amateur astrophotographer. The exhibition opens October 3rd and extends to October 29th . It is called “Treasures of the Northern and Southern Night Skies.”

Mr. Nammacher will show his photographs, taken from two remotely operated observatories (one in Australia and the other in New Mexico) and his up-state observatory, Starmere Observatory. He has been photographing nebulas, galaxies, along with cloud and gas regions, and more local solar system targets since the early 2000s. He became more seriously involved after he designed and built an observatory near Catskill, NY in late 2008. He has shown earlier works at locations in the Hudson Valley area, including Pound Ridge.

His photographs are printed using a unique process involving printing on coated aluminum, which enhances the color and vibrancy of the printed pictures.
