  Abstract: We teach families to use the free software, MicroObservatory Image, to process images that they request online from NASA's MicroObservatory. The software is freely available online and the learning curve is relatively easy, making it an ideal introduction to astronomical image processing for outreach. I'll present a quick overview of the program's features and locations for additional resources.
