The Astronomy Cameras (for solar, planetary, ISS, near and thermal IR, UV, 3D) Paradise !

Retired, I have participated to the beginning of the webcam adventure in astronomy, a time where we were modifying all the Philips ToUCams we could put a hand on. Today, my main interests now are ISS Hires tracking, the Sun in H-alpha (Coronado SM90 & double-stack PST), planetary imaging with a 12" LX-200, 3D stereoscopic imaging, near infrared (NIR) and thermal infrared (TIR), UV photography. I have also a full spectrum Canon EOS 1100D and a partially defiltered Canon EOS 40D. For the ISS, I use a special modified EQ-G mount and Videos Sky software,both developped by E. Rietsch ! I am day after day grateful to the authors of Registax, Autostakkert!2, VirtualDub, GIMP2, Astrosnap(XP only) and Deepskystacker softwares which are some of the best amateur astronomy tools ! I am still active in RegiStax development and in the SCF french stereo club. Sometimes my imagery of the Sun as scientific value.
