Summary
"The Practical Guide to Lightcurve Photometry and Analysis provides those with access to even a modest telescope and a CCD camera the background and detailed steps to take part in the scientific study of asteroids and variable stars. Using commercially available equipment, amateur astronomers can determine the rotation rate, size, and shape of asteroids. Similarly, it is possible to discover the size, temperature, and orbits of stars in binary systems by using this powerful technique." "The book contains all the material needed for readers to understand the theory and avoid the practical pitfalls of lightcurve photometry. Detailed examples are given for obtaining data, and, of course, for the exciting and rewarding task of analyzing the data to determine the physical properties of the object."--Jacket
