Description/Abstract

Confronted by (modern) advances, amateur astronomers - the driving force behind the study of the heavens for much of history - have had to reinvent themselves. Today's "amateur" is, in fact, a serious professional armed with the latest tools of optics and computers to capture, analyse, catalogue; and disseminate information and images of the night sky (and day sky!) They complement, rather than compete with, the work of major observatories and research scientists. Some areas of study, such as the search for near Earth's objects - asteroids and comets - still rely heavily on the efforts of dedicated amateurs. Dr Greg Parker is onesuch serious amateur.
