Information provided by Dave Scherping of the Prairie Astronomy Club in Nebraska.Category Science Astronomy Amateur Beginners......PAC Homepage amateur astronomy. By Dave Scherping There's numerousreasons why people become astronomers. Many enjoy the beauty
Amateur Astronomy
By: Dave Scherping I feel that part of my role as president is to help our members continue to grow and not lose interest in astronomy. As with most hobbies, if there's no variation or challenges, you may lose interest. One way to add variation and excitement is to get involved in one of the activities in which amateur astronomers can make contributions to science. Astronomy is unique among the sciences in that amateurs can and do play an important role. When was the last time you heard of an amateur chemist, biologist, or geologist making an important discovery? Sure, some amateurs dabble in these sciences but rarely do they contribute significant observations or discoveries. In astronomy, professionals are typically absorbed in teaching and conducting specialized research, and observing time at the major observatories is limited and not easy to come by. This leaves open numerous areas in which amateurs can contribute. Below are a few examples : Comet Hunting is the field that usually comes to mind when we think of amateur discoveries. Mankind has had an interest in comets since the ancient days, and devotion to comet discovery can be traced back many centuries. Since the invention of the telescope, many individuals have devoted entire lifetimes to being the first to observe a new comet. It's the one discovery that eternally carries the name of the discoverer. Comet hunting does indeed require dedication. Avid comet hunters are ready to go at dusk nearly every clear night of the year and are up then a couple of hours before dawn, searching the skies again. Some have searched for years with little success, while others have found several. All will tell you, the rewards are worth it.

Where Amateur Astronomy Resides
An open letter to the editor of the Prairie Astronomer from Kevin Koutnik
[This letter has been included in our web page because if the timeless nature of the thoughts that reside within it. (originally published in the Prairie Astronomer in December 1992)] I just got my new telescope no too long ago and am still discovering all sorts of things that I knew existed but also knew that I would never be able to see with only my binoculars at my disposal. When I first got my Celestron Special Edition Ultima 8 I was pretty guarded about the whole thing. Oh, I have a friend, also a member of the club whom I generally share my observations with. He has a Mead LX-6 10" SCT and we've been comparing sights between the two scopes. He pulls down a few more stars than I and can probably find a few more galaxies and planetaries than I, but for all intents and purposes, we can reach nearly the same objects to suit our amateur desires. Being members of a fairly good-sized and active club has helped our hobbies along marvelously. The people in our club are always helpful in providing assistance when some problem arises during a session, and all provide a unique form of friendship that one only finds when appreciating something as universal as amateur astronomy.

43. Deep Impact Home Page
NASA homepage for the planned mission, which will fly by Comet 9P/Tempel 1 on July 4, 2005. Includes kids' activities, lesson plans for educators, and an amateur astronomy observing program.
Deep Impact will be the first mission to make a spectacular football stadium-sized crater 7-15 stories deep into a speeding comet. Dramatic images from both the flyby spacecraft and the impactor will be sent back to distant Earth as data in near-real time. These first ever views deep beneath a comet's surface, and additional scientific measurements will provide clues to the formation of the solar system. Amateur astronomers will combine efforts with astronomers at larger telescopes to offer the public an earth-based look at this incredible July 2005 encounter with a comet.
New educational activities added 9/12/02!
Several members of the instrument team at Ball Aerospace celebrate a major milestone in the Deep Impact mission - mounting the instruments to the instrument platform of the flyby spacecraft. These instruments will observe the impact from a safe distance and then look inside of the crater as Comet Tempel 1 flies overhead.

My Moon Photos
You have found, either on purpose or by chance, my amateur astronomy website. I hope that the content you find here will be of some educational benefit, or that you will at least find some inspiration that may lead you to a passion you knew not existed. When I say passion I don't use the term loosely, for that is what the vast majority of amateur astronomers experience - true passion for our favorite past time. I, like many of you, am a backyard astronomer . We are the dedicated few who prefer to spend our free time looking up at the stars on any given clear night, no matter what the season, even if we are challenged with sub-freezing temperatures, vermin (skunks, opossums, racoons... etc.), obnoxious street lamps (light pollution), mosquitos and spiders, among other "hazards" and "inconveniences" . We tend to spend too much money on our hobby whether it's a new eyepiece, filter, software, magazines and books, or even that "big" telescope we've always wanted.

As of now, what we do is meet on the Raman Building rooftop at night to look at the stars, as opposed to talking about black holes and the big bang ! We have more than a hundred members so far of which some are listed ( rest will be put up soon...) We have a lot of activities planned, subject to sky conditions. As the club is fairly small, we shall take it as it goes, but suggestions are more than welcome. Putting a figure of a man digging the earth would be trite, but of course, this page is very much under construction.

Updated Welcome to my amateur astronomy website
Current Moon Phase I am a deep sky fanatic (a geek, as those who know me often say), especially galaxies and nebulae, but I also like to look at the planets and the Moon. I haven't really been too interested in comets, variable stars, etc. but try to keep an open mind as I may travel that path in the future. I've logged all of Messier's 110 (109), many from midtown Tucson, AZ using a 6" reflector and have completed a Messier Marathon using a 20" Obsession reflector. I had originally planned to capture images of all of the Messier objects using the 20" and an SBIG ST-237 CCD camera, but I never got around to that - mainly because I had a hard time not using the 20" for visual observing. Now, I no longer have the 20" Obsession, having sold it in order to purchase a 25" Obsession. I should have the 25" in early January 2003. My goal for this website is to share my enthusiasm for amateur astronomy. I plan to eventually post film photography and CCD and digital camera images from my viewing sessions.

56. Common Amateur Astronomy Terms
Green Globe, COMMON amateur astronomy TERMS. The user is assistedin exploiting the formulas found in this book through usage notes
The user is assisted in exploiting the formulas found in this book through usage notes, definitions, and examples provided throughout the Astro Functions and Methods . This sheet lists some common terms and concepts used throughout the work. UT is Universal Time , which is the standard time at the prime meridian (0-degrees longitude) running through Greenwich England. UT times are given on a 24-hour clock. In the Americas a number of hours must be added to local time to calculate UT. In the continental USA the standard corrections are +5 (Eastern), +6 (Central), +7 (Mountain), and +8 (Pacific) hours. Add one hour less when daylight savings is in effect. Note that, if this addition causes the time to pass midnight (exceeds 24-hours) you must increment your calendar date. For instance, Central Standard Time (CST) is 6-hours behind UT, if it were 8:44 PM CST on May 20th you would determine UT as follows: 1) For PM hours add 12-hours to get time in 24-hour format: 8:44 PM is 20:44 hours.

Lydia Lousteaux Amateur Astronomy Section - Interview 7 Data Wizards and the Clear Sky Clocks Today we are talking to two very 'Data Oriented' Gentlemen: Allan Rahill, a most avid and accurate "Forecaster of Clouds and Clear Skies", particularly for amateur astronomers. Allan collects the Data for Attilla Danko's Greatest Invention: The Clear Sky Clock which puts Allan's data to task in forecasting sky transparency for specific observing sites. These gentlemen do this in their own free time, willingly and totally gratis for the Amateur Astronomer. I have personally tested the clock, which Attilla prepared for several areas, and so far, it has been very accurate in forecasting clear skies. Notice to non-American/Canadian readers: the clear sky clock unfortunately is currently unavailable to observers outside the Americas. Hopefully Mr. Allan Rahill will find a way to "psych out" the weather gods and soon bring it to your area. For the moment, it is solely available to the Americas. - LL Mr. Attila Danko, "Clear Clock Wizard", is originally from Hungary, transplanted to Ottawa, Canada. Mr. Allan Rahill: "The Data Master", is a French Canadian living in Montreal, Canada, about 2 hours away. Having never met, they have worked together on weather data to aid amateur astronomers in finding out "when it will be clear for observing".
