Imaging Survey


This workshop will be lead by Jeff Roberston, Ph.D who is a veritable Pied Piper for Amateur astronomer involvement in science. It is recommended, but not required, that attendees bring a laptop computer. Attendees will learn how to process CCD images and produce photometry of variable stars and/or eclipsing binaries using the following free software to generate, visualize and analyze light curve data:

If there is time and interest we may also review Vstar for analysis and plotting and/or LesvePhotometry for processing. Submit interests in these or other relevant areas via this website contact form.

Club Leadership

This roundtable forum will be moderated by Darrell Heath and/or Bruce McMath and is intended to provide club leaders with an opportunity to share ideas, and discuss ways to improve and grow our clubs. To stimulate the process all the clubs in the region as well as states immediately adjacent to Arkansas have been asked to participate in a club management survey. The results of this survey to-date can be viewed at the link below.
