Daniel López. Astrophotographer.

Prolific professional astrophotographer in various fields, including high-resolution astrophotography professional telescopes (in collaboration with the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias), amateur astrophotography, landscape astrophotography and TimeLapse. Web: www.elcielodecanarias.com


Alejandro Sanchez de Miguel. The leading researcher of the Cities at Night project at Universidad Complutense de Madrid.

He will present on “Doing science with DSLR cameras from the ground and the Space Station”. While DSLRs are not scientific instruments but when they are calibrated and characterized they can be used for scientific purposes. Many of the images taken by astronauts on-board the ISS are now being used to study light pollution distribution and to track the natural sky brightness variations or the human activity.

Stargazers enjoy the starry sky of La Palma, Canary Islands, from the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. In the sky the Milky Way in the constellation Sagittarius is on the right and red bands of airglow (natural emission of the Earth upper atmosphere) appear on the left.

Xavier Jubier. IAU Working Group on Solar Eclipses

Xavier of France is best known for his work on interactive solar and lunar eclipses maps (Five Millennium Canon of Solar and Lunar Eclipses, plus Six Millenium Canon of Mercury and Venus Transits), as well as his specialized eclipse applications, namely Solar Eclipse Maestro, Lunar Eclipse Maestro, Mercury Venus Transit Maestro, to control multiple DSLRs and CCD cameras. He started to get involved with solar eclipses in the early 90’s and now tries to combine three of his passions: eclipses, landscape/astro photography and travel.

He maintains a website: www.xjubier.free.fr  and has been directly involved in a few world premieres notably in Antarctica, or in the lower stratosphere more recently.
