Meeting the challenge of astrophotography

Year 9 Challenge Science students at Iona Presentation College have spent the term using SPIRIT to undertake deep sky astrophotography. Using advanced processing techniques, the students combined images taken through filters available on the SPIRIT telescopes to create stunning colour photographs and produced both printed books and eBooks to showcase their work.

The books include information from researching their targets, together with the processes they used to create the images.
