Presented by Ian Doktor

RASC Vancouver


This talk will provide an introduction to amateur photometry and describe the skills, tools and techniques to make a basic photometry project successful. It will also include the description of a successful high school photometry project by former students. The students will share their impressions of photometry as an astronomical and educational experience. Finally, Ian will share his experiences and past photometry projects as well as provide useful resources for anyone else interested in observing eclipsing binary stars, pulsating stars or transiting exoplanets.
