...but we're about to start our spring and summer observing parties! Keep posted on upcoming events!
During this winter, we've been running the robotic telescope via the Skynet interface, testing its capabilities and doing some wonderful imaging. During the long, dark nights of winter it's ideal for taking long time-series images. In particular, my students and I been able to grab several very good exoplanet transits, some of exoplanets that have not been observed in a while. Some of the data we have gathered seems to differ significantly from the published values - we'll be able to add to the body of knowledge about some of these! Keep posted for our final results!
Brad Vietje has continued to work closely with AAVSO and gather photometric data for recent supernova and nova events - with credit given on the AAVSO website to Brad and NSO! Congratulations!
