SPIE Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation is the most prestigious event for experts working on ground- and space-based telescopes and the technologies and instrumentation that enable powerful discoveries about our past and provide glimpses into our future. No other event draws the number of elite researchers, innovators, and companies whose collective efforts push the frontiers of space and enable the building and maintaining of the important telescopes of the world.
In 2009, we celebrate the ‘International Year of Astronomy,’ celebrating 400 years of discovery. The theme for the 2010 meeting is ‘Observational Frontiers of Astronomy for the New Decade’ and will focus on the following areas:
