Jim Chung



Jim Chung has degrees in Biochemistry and Dentistry from the University of Western Ontario and has been a member of the Toronto RASC Center for more than a decade.  Family and work preoccupations made him athesunaug102016 latecomer to astronomy where he developed an obsession with photographing the Sun, the planets and deep space objects.  His work has appeared in magazines such as Sky & Telescope and SkyNews and for several years he wrote a regular column in the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada.  Last summer his book was released,”Astro Imaging Projects for Amateur Astronomers – A Maker’s Guide”.  Dr. Chung has lectured extensively about how to photograph the cosmos and how this can be accomplished on a budget often by making your own telescopes and gear, and modifying cameras.  He is determined to turn anyone into a amateur astrophotographer!

Jim  will be teaching the Eclipse and Planetary Imaging course. Please register at the CAPS website.
