Yes but…

Forums General Discussion Astronomer or not? Yes but…

Dr Andrew Smith

Clearly you are an astronomer the question is am I disqualified? I don’t image either I do spectroscopy and have never looked through my current telescope. I do also like being out under the night sky but I don’t have either good eyesight or dark skies.

I have discovered candidate new Be stars doing automated spectroscopy with a home built telescope and commercial spectrograph and camera – is that not enough to be am astronomer?
