IAU Symposium 299 day 1

Our apologies if you’re having trouble keeping up, but MagAO is now in Victoria, B.C., for IAUS 299. The conference got off to a great start with a review talk by Beth Biller, a product of the Arizona+Laird system.

Beth kicked off the conference. Johanna comments.

TJ had the honor of closing out today’s session. He wowed the crowd with LBT and MagAO disk images.

The talks from this conference go up on youtube as soon as Christian gets them uploaded (gulp). Here’s TJ’s talk.

For me, personally, the highlight of the conference so far has been the harbour ferry ballet, a truly impressive feat of nautical coordination.

The harbour ferry ballet. Seriously — this is a thing.

This is a lovely place to visit.
