Register Now for AIC 2009
This year's meeting is heavily focused on data acquisition and image processing- the nuts and bolts of the hobby that often proves vexing to everyone. We've arranged to have many of, if not, the world's leading exponents openly share their wisdom, experience and recommendations while you're having fun talking with old friends and making new acquaintances.
Your attendance at just one of our sessions can save you hours of frustration and help prevent you from making costly investments based on the wrong advice. Nowhere else will you find this level of astrophotographic expertise assembled in the same location.
If you consider yourself an astrophotographer or have that aspiration- this is the place to be!
But hurry! The AIC only happens once a year!
Registration for the 2009 Advanced Imaging Conference is still open but space is filling up quickly. As of mid-September, we are 75% to our capacity!
Our conference fees have not changed since 2007!
Take a look at the 2009 agenda here.
2009 AIC Image Gallery deadline is October 1!
Let your light shine throughout the conference by sending us your best images for the AIC Image Gallery. Displayed throughout the conference during breaks, lunches and the Saturday night dinner, by the end of the meeting your work will have been seen over a dozen times by other meeting attendees- and they will become part of the AIC permanent collection on the AIC web site following the conference.
This is not a contest, there will be no judges and no one will receive a blue ribbon. Instead, this is a celebration of our hobby and, as a result, everyone is guaranteed to be a winner! So, here's an opportunity for you to shine a spot light on your astrophotography talent! In fact, your most difficult challenge may be deciding which images to feature!
To enter, follow our simple guidelines then upload your pictures to our server. It's fast and easy!

29 Exhibitors to Assemble at the 2009 AIC Technology Showcase
One of the highlights of any Advanced Imaging Conference is the opportunity to see the latest astronomical gadgetry, software and speak with the principals who produce it. We're happy to report that the 2009 meeting will not be any different except we've expanded the area so there will be much more elbow room!
Twenty nine of the world's leading image astronomical processing and control software developers, service providers and manufacturers have registered and will be on exhibit during breaks, lunches, following the Saturday night dinner and the Friday Night Founding Sponsor Reception. Please click here for the complete list of exhibitors who will be at the meeting.
It should be noted that the costs associated with organizing and operating our annual conferences are far greater than the sum of registration fees charged to our attendees. The difference is made up by the generous support of our Sponsors and Vendors- without their financial support, the AIC would not be possible. You can show your appreciation through your patronage of the Technology Showcase Exhibitors.
2009 Advanced Imaging Conference: October 30- November 1, San Jose, California
