Treasures of the Northern and Southern Night Skies: Astrophotography by Scott Nammacher

Astrophotography Exhibition at Pound Ridge Library – May 23rd to July 3rd 2015

Pound Ridge Library will be having an exhibition of the astrophotography of Scott Nammacher, a Westchester based amateur astrophotographer. The exhibition opens May 23rd and extends to July 3rd in the library’s Exhibition Hall. It is called “Treasures of the Northern and Southern Night Skies.”

There will be an opening reception on Saturday, May 23rd, from 3 pm to 5 pm. Come meet the photographer and see the wonders of the night time 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 2008. He has shown earlier works at locations in the Hudson Valley area. The Pound Ridge show will contain many new photos taken in the last several years.

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