Name : 3-Colour Imaging
The '3-Colour Imaging' workshop is a self-contained workshop that introduces students to the idea of creating 3-colour images using the Liverpool Telescope, and can be adapted to suit all secondary ages and abilities. Using the same techniques employed by professional astro-photographers, students will quickly learn how to use LTImage to combine images taken through different filters, in order to generate a representative colour image of the object being observed. The workshop brings together ICT, Physics and a little Art to make a colourful hour of discovery.
Age Range : 11 - 18 years
Workshop Time : 1 hour
