Elliott Lawson interview: Quasi-Engineering, Astrophotography and Star Parties!

November 11, 2021

Our guest this episode is Elliott Lawson (aka @AstroLawson). Elliott is an astrophotographer who captures beautiful images of the night sky with his telescope, a camera and sometimes even an iPhone.

Professionally, Elliott has been an engineer in the defense industry for 20 years
after spending 11 years in the Air Force. He is currently employed as a Field Engineer at Raytheon.

We discuss Elliott's passion for astrophotography, the equipment needed to get started, and why he MUST share what he's seeing with other people.  As well, we explore his experiences with the diverse community of astrophotographers, both online and in-person, and the traits they share with engineers -  such as creativity, attention to detail and having fun.

Finally we hear about the amazing experience of "STAR PARTIES" - and why he recommends it to "every human on the planet"!
