Any astrophotography specialist in NY area? [Mach1GTO / Stellarvue 80mm]


Camila Pastorelli
 

Hi guys!


My name is Camila and I work at a Brazilian NGO of photography called ImageMagica founded by the photographer André François. Since 1995, we develop social projects in schools and hospitals using photography as a tool of transformation. Besides that, we also produce photo documentaries around the world that discuss important issues like access to health, quality of life, education, among others. We have partnerships from UN (United Nations), WHO (World Health Organization), Doctors Without Borders (MSF), among other organizations.

 

Andre is a photographer for over 30 years and has done several projects with photography here in Brazil and worldwide. We travel a lot to get those projects done. If you have sometime, take a look at his website: https://www. andrefrancois.com.br/home-1

 

We are starting a new project with astrophotography and people in the world. The idea is - apart of a nice portrait - to photograph (in mono) the deep sky above this person. This kind of photography is something completely new to us


Andre will be in New York next week and he would need some help to set up the equipment we've bought: Mach1GTO and a telescope Stellarvue 80mm, among other accessories. Do you know anyone available for a couple of hours between Sep, 21st-23rd. 


It would really help us a lot! :)


Many thanks,


Best


Camila

Well I have an AP-900 permanently mounted in my yard. Andre could set up the Mach1 seperately and we could image with my equipment and the Mach1.


Give me your email address and I will send you some information and pictures.

Hi Steve,
That's sound very exciting. The fact is Andre doesn't have any experience with the equipment, so he will need help to set up the mount and the scope before taking pictures. If you think you could help, please email us: camila@..., andre@...

Let's be in touch
Best,
Camila

A detailed list of equipment would be good. There are many small but critical pieces. Maybe you could forward me the invoices so I can check the inventory. Who did you purchase from?

Hi guys,

We are still trying to find someone in New York (and it's better in New York City) this week/next week who can help Andre to set up the equipment, specially the Mach1. Any suggestions of people or someone who we can ask the same question?

Thank you!
