Abstract: Advances in technology have made it easier than ever to produce high quality images illustrating astronomical phenomena. These range from cellphones with apps for night sky photography to DLSR tracking mounts allowing for longer exposures of the night sky. This Special Interest Group will discuss how to capture various types of events in the night sky that combine aesthetic appeal while illustrating the science behind astronomical phenomena, the equipment needed to capture these images, and how to distribute the images and information to traditional and social media platforms.
