Nik spoke at length both about using film and about digital photography. He had many tips about the use of film although most amateurs starting out in astro-imaging today would not be using film. Nik’s talk is peppered with anecdotes about hair-raising close escapes he’s had with film processing.
Nik, Ian King, and others have been making regular trips to La Palma in the Canaries, to the Roque de Los Muchachos observatories, for some years now, and the resulting images have been spectacular.
We must let Nik’s own images on his website CCDland speak for themselves.
