Astrophotography: Capturing the beauty of the night sky
Vinita Navalkar, TIFR

Sunday July 2, 2017
11:00 am
Prithvi Theatre

The glorious pictures of the Milky Way are no longer limited to professional astronomers with fancy equipment! The widespread availability of digital SLR cameras and specialized image processing techniques actually allow amazing pictures to be taken, even from a light polluted city like Mumbai! Come find out how to get awesome pictures of the night sky.

About the speaker: Vinita Navalkar, a member of the ASTROSAT team at TIFR who worked on the Soft X-ray Telescope, is an amateur astronomer and has conducted several sky observation programmes. Questions about prime numbers are among the oldest in mathematics, and while we know a lot about them many simple questions still remain unanswered. Join us as we discuss some basic facts about prime numbers, how to count them, and how quantities like pi come up surprisingly naturally when one studies the primes!
