The IFAS AOP is a program open to all amateur astronomers. It encompasses eight modules covering deep sky and solar system subjects. The aim of the program is to collect scientific data in a co-ordinated manner and report it to appropriate authorities.
We presented the main elements of the program to Whirpool in October 2006. You can download the presentation here.
We have commenced work on two modules - Supernova Search and Meteor Watch - we hope to get some lunar observing going soon.
The choice of modules to kick start is really based on the volunteers we have. So as more people volunteer for the different modules, they will come on line soon after.
If you would like to participate or volunteer any services, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact me via this email.
