Manual for occultations

Forums Moon Lunar Occultation of 104 Tau on Oct-28th Manual for occultations

Tim Haymes

The IOTA North America web site has many useful publications and links to occultation observing techniques. There may not be much info’ on the use of USB-CCD planetary cameras in these publications.  Only with Windows 8 and 10  does the timing facility of these systems become more reliable (another story).  Anyway we are not looking for exact UT for 104 Tau to help solve the double star question.  (in my view).  We will use a light curve measured from an AVI recording.

Visual impressions would also be nice too, if no video camera is available. All observations sent to the BAA Lunar Section will be acknowledged.
