Re: RFH/RFC: Debian Astro flyer

Hi Ole,

I think the pamphlet looks pretty good!

If you want some "pretty pictures" (perhaps to replace the top picture of folks hacking -- I recognize that they are probably in a telescope control room, but it's not obvious), you can look around here:
(if you click on the map, there is a "cutout" link to get a cutout where you are looking; you can increase he "size" URL arg for a larger cutout).
If you hit 'Enter' with an empty string in the "Jump to object" box, it will jump to a random galaxy.
You're welcome to publish any image from there with the credit line given in the bottom-left.

*Personally*, I HATE the name/abbreviation "Sextractor"; I would change it to "SourceExtractor" for the pamphlet.

Best wishes,

Hi all,

since I will attend the Astronomical Data Analysis Software & Systems
(ADASS) conference November 11 - 15, I wanted to promote Debian Astro
there with distributing a flyer. The flyer could also be used afterwards
for other events (German AG Tagung etc.).

There is now a repository for the flyer on salsa:


I used scribus to create the flyer. A PDF (6MB) can be directly
downloaded here:


Comments, critics, and hints (I have zero experience with creating
promotional materials) are more than welcome. Especially, I am still
unhappy with the images in the central column of the first page. Does
anyone a good idea what to put there?
