Alex is a datacenter design engineer for Dell. He has been an astrophotographer since the summer of 2018 and he runs the Deep Sky Ohio Facebook page which often hosts live telescope observing sessions.

Alex will talk about how to plan, image, and process pictures of meteor showers. This is an especially timely topic, considering we are in the midst of the long-lasting Delta Aquariid shower and coming up on the Perseids, which is often considered to be the best meteor shower of the year.

A recording of this talk can be found on the CAS YouTube page:
