Three Rivers Foundation and the Comanche Springs Astronomy Campus is proud to announce the 2023 Astro Imaging Workshop.  This opportunity will be offered December 7, 8, and 9 2023.

Are you an intermediate imager looking to gain that edge on advanced processing? Do you know a few things but seem to be missing some steps? Do your images seem to suffer but you just don't know why? If you answered "YES" to any of the previous questions, then this workshop is for you and you do not want to miss out!

Jerry Gardner and a group of 3RF volunteers will be holding an intensive imaging workshop focused to attract an intermediate audience looking to refine that competitive edge on image processing. This intensive workshop will be limited to 15 seats and tailored for the person who knows a little but can't quite seem to get there. Join us December 7-December 9, 2023 as we sit down and cover things like data acquisition, data calibration, preprocessing and post processing. Best of all, this workshop will be held at the Comanche Springs Astronomy Campus in Crowell, Texas that will include night time imaging at your leisure. We will also process real data from start to finish. Feel free to bring your setup as we learn and image under starry Texas skies.

A $275.00 registration fee buys you into this wonderful learning opportunity and will include a tent site, RV site or bunk in one of our bunkhouses for both nights as well as classroom snacks.


5 private cabins are available for an additional $400.  This covers three nights and the cabins include 2 full sized beds, private bath and kitchenette.  This is subject to availability and cabins will be reserved on a first come first served basis. 

An optional catered meal plan is available for $110 (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, lunch and dinner only).
