Department of Physics and Astronomy makes astrophotography more accessible to students – The Ithacan

Ithaca College purchased new astrophotography equipment — like telescopes, cameras, and light filters — in Summer 2023. Poor weather conditions have made capturing photos of the sky with the new equipment challenging, but the Department of Physics and Astronomy is working toward making the sky and the new equipment more accessible to students.

Images of space are captured by placing specialized cameras in front of a telescope, which function similarly to the human eye and a pair of glasses: the telescope makes the image accessible to the camera. However, the newly purchased equipment is much more powerful than a pair of glasses. By using different light filters, astrophotography cameras are capable of capturing light that is not part of the visual spectrum.

Sophomore Suryash Malviya, a physics and astronomy and computer science double major, worked with the new equipment extensively over the summer. The funding for the equipment — which cost $1,500 — came from a combination of alumni gifts and the Physics and Astronomy Department’s annual research budget. 

Malviya spent eight weeks doing astronomical research at the college through the Summer Scholars Program.

The Summer Scholars Program is a selective program that gives students in the School of Humanities & Sciences the opportunity to work with staff on paid research projects. Malviya worked with Matthew Price, professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Malviya said astrophotography practically supplements the theoretical study of the components of the sky.

“Astrophotography is the art of visually recording what’s in the sky,” Malviya said. “We can only see a particular part of the light spectrum, so astrophotography helps us see what’s out there.”

Price and Malviya used specialized cameras in their research, including planetary cameras and deep-sky cameras. However, smoke from the Canadian wildfires polluted the sky over the summer, making research difficult.

“We didn’t get a whole lot of data,” Price said. “You can’t see through the smoke, so a big optical telescope is going to be useless in the clouds.”

High concentrations of smoke made it unsafe to go outside and use the equipment. Malviya said the observatory was inaccessible over the summer because of these weather complications.

“You don’t get to explore all of the features of the camera unless you put it into use in the real world,” Malviya said.

Price said smoke from wildfires could have been dangerous to the telescopes and cameras, which forced Malviya and Price to be cautious in their research.

However, at the end of summer, the college ordered a radio telescope that functions differently from a traditional telescope. Instead of using optics, it collects and amplifies radio waves, which eliminates the obstacle of capturing unclear images or damaging the cameras.

“It might be cloudy, but you can still use the [radio] telescope and do your work from inside, so it’s really helpful,” Malviya said.

A new optical telescope was also installed in August 2022 at the Clinton B. Ford Observatory, located in the Natural Lands, after it was forced to close following the COVID-19 pandemic.

 “[The observatory] was taken over by the nature [during the pandemic] because no one was maintaining it,” Malviya said. “A bunch of mice got inside and they chewed up a bunch of wires.”

The observatory reopened in Fall 2022. Price plans to open the observatory to students and use the new astrophotography equipment there starting Fall 2023 to make up for lost time.

“We will start having regular public viewing nights, but there are still some things we need to do,” Price said. “We truly only had the new optics and the new mount up there for just a year and we lost months of summer work because of the smoke and rain.”

Students need to be involved in independent astronomy research in order to use the new astrophotography equipment, but this equipment is not necessary to capture the sky. 

Senior Nikolaj Konieczny, a physics and astronomy major and president of the Astronomy Club, practices astrophotography using a telescope and the camera on his phone.

“I want astrophotography to be something that’s accessible to anybody,” Konieczny said. “I don’t see why you shouldn’t have a picture of Saturn on your phone. Everybody has the ability to put their phone right up to the eyepiece and snap a picture of that.”

The Astronomy Club, which is advised by Price, has access to its own equipment that can now be used by anyone, including a large telescope. The Astronomy Club plans to meet every week and will soon have access to the observatory, where they will host their own public viewing nights. 

“Previously, [the Astronomy Club] was an academic-only club, and I personally don’t see why we should gatekeep the universe from other people,” Konieczny said. “It’s beautiful. It’s something you have to share with everybody.”

Photography school steps in for students after Art Institute of Atlanta closes

ATLANTAAfter the sudden closing of the Art Institute of Atlanta (AIA), students were left scrambling to figure out how to continue their education. One school focused on photography announced it would be stepping up to the plate to help the affected students enroll.

Sara Keith, the owner of the Atlanta School of Photography, has opened a scholarship fund to provide free classes and discounted workshops for students of AIA.

“A student’s dream of higher education should never be in jeopardy of loss,” the Atlanta School of Photography website reads. “The will and dedication to become a professional artist takes a truly unique person, and we want to do our part to support them.”

To apply for the scholarship, students must provide proof of enrollment at AIA. You can find more information here.

Keith is also still accepting donations to help more students.

AIA said it would be mailing current students up to five official copies of their transcripts at no cost to help with transfers.

La Jolla biologist connects people to nature through photography and travel

In the pre-dawn hours of a mid-September morning, biologist, photographer and environmental advocate Nigella Hillgarth woke up in a tent surrounded by acacia trees in the African Savanna.

Hillgarth, a La Jolla resident, is as at-home in Kenya as by the ocean. She retired to La Jolla in 2018, after having living there from 2002 to 2014, when she was executive director of Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. She also holds a remote post as an affiliate professor and research scientist at the University of Washington.

Hillgarth spends a great deal of time traveling, with her international trips encompassing both business and pleasure.

Her recent African adventure was a photographic safari with a small group. “First light appears as I drink a cup of coffee and pack my cameras for the day,” Hillgarth said. “Early morning is my favorite part of the day, before it gets too hot and many animals are out and light for photography is good.”

They camped in the Southern Masai Mara, and were off by 6 a.m. most mornings, looking for lions, leopards and other animals.

“For a biologist like myself, African animals are fascinating. There are still so many large wild animals living free in their natural habitat, and living and interacting in the same way they have for thousands, if not millions of years,” Hillgarth said. “As a photographer, it is a great place to go to get wonderful shots and the light can be amazing.”

She said that the groups take photos until the heat of the day, when they retire back to camp, venturing out again in the evenings for a few more hours.

Despite being retired, Hillgarth still strives to connect people to the natural world, and lets others know what can be done to protect it in the face of habitat loss, pollution and the shifting climate. She combines her photography and science background to develop shows, which help teach the public about environmental issues.

Although she had been to East Africa before, Hillgarth’s current venture is her first visit to Kenya. In January, she will travel to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, departing from the southern tip of Argentina.

“This will be my fifth trip to Antarctica and I can’t wait to go back,” she said. “Antarctica is full of color and sound and life.” She described the sunsets as “the best I have ever seen,” the penguins as “delightful” and the icebergs and glaciers as “incredible.”

In late July, Hillgarth will travel to the Arctic, to Svalbard, the Greenland Sea and Iceland. The following October she will visit the Seychelles in East Africa.

Before returning to La Jolla from Kenya, she plans to take a trip to Ireland for a few days. There, she will visit friends and stay at a small cottage she has there, in Tipperary on Lough Derg, near Nenagh, next to where she was born and grew up.

Hillgarth’s hometown nurtured her love of animals and nature during her upbringing.

So much so that when Hillgarth was 5, she went around her house saying “I am an animal lover, I am an animal lover” over and over again, and “I really haven’t changed,” she said.

An Oxford University graduate, she received her master’s degree in zoology and doctoral degree in animal behavior. She specialized in the behavior and physiology of pheasants, and conducted research in Britain, India and Thailand.

She later became the executive director of the Tracy Aviary, the nation’s largest bird park, in Salt Lake, Utah, then the president and CIO of the New England Aquarium in Boston, before landing at Birch Aquarium.

Of all the places Hillgarth has traveled, she is always happy to come back home.

“What is not to like about La Jolla? It has so much history for the area, and great institutions such as Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, the Salk Institute and several others,” she said, and praised the friendly people, great atmosphere, restaurants and stores, and the fantastic weather.

“And of course, the ocean is simply wonderful,” Hillgarth said. “What better place is there to retire?”

Nikon Nikkor Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena, price, specs, release date confirmed

The Nikon Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena is a top-flight full-frame lens designed for Z-series mirrorless cameras such as the Nikon Z8 and Z7 II. Its 135mm focal length and maximum aperture of f/1.8 make it especially well-suited to portrait, fashion and nature photography.

Nikon has included ‘Plena’ in the lens name to convey that it is a ‘complete’ lens without defects or flaws. The Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena is Nikon’s second lens to have a name, the Noct (Nikon Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct) being the first.

According to Nikon, the width of the Z mount has extended the possibilities for lens design, and the Plena takes full advantage of this for top-quality results. The new lens is said to deliver the best rendering power of any Nikon S-Line lens to date, along with the best vignette control of any S-Line lens at f/1.8. This is achieved by a prestige optical construction comprising 16 elements in 14 groups with Nikon’s SR glass, an aspherical lens element and an 11-blade iris with a round aperture. Nikon’s Meso Amorphous Coat and ARNEO Coat are also used to counter glare and lens flare. It all adds up to a lens that is said to minimise diffraction and counter sagittal coma and spherical aberrations.

Nikon also claims there is no need to stop down the Nikkor Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena, and even when the aperture is wide open, point light sources are sharp, round, and clear, while backlit bokeh is devoid of sagittal coma and flare.

Naturally, the Plena features a fast, precise autofocus system, making it a great pairing with cameras such as the Nikon Z9 or Z8. There’s also a minimum focus distance of 0.82 mm.

The Nikon Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena has customisable controls, including a dedicated control ring, and it weighs just under 1Kg.

As it’s an S-Line lens, the Nikkor Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena’s barrel is made from tough yet lightweight metal. It features two L-fn buttons arranged for horizontal and vertical shooting, and a large knurled ring for manual focusing. In addition, all the joints and buttons are weather-sealed, and there’s a rubber gasket around the mount. The filer mount is 82 mm, the same as S-Line f/1.2 lenses.

Nikon Nikkor Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena price and availability

The Nikon Z 135mm f/1.8 S Plena’s price is £2699 / €3,099. It will go on sale in mid-October 2023.

Need child care? There are 20 child care spots available on a first-come basis. The children will spend the event in our classroom indulging in the nature-based programming area children have been enjoying at the Nature Center for the past 50 years.

The idea for a nature center started when Junior League member and conservationist Bette-Barron “B.B.” Stamats visited one in the Twin Cities and brought the idea home.

They started the nonprofit on city-owned land at Bertram and Otis roads in southeast Cedar Rapids, where the city offered to lease the 140-acre wooded site, once a dairy farm, for $1 a year. Today the nature center has nearly 500 acres of land under its management, and the nature center hosts thousands of visitors each year for nature-based programs and activities.

Its mission is to promote a sustainable future by nurturing individuals through environmental education, providing leadership in land protection and restoration, and encouraging responsible interaction with nature.
