I’m sure this is a daft question, but I’ve just joined the BAA (long time observer, first time member) and I see a lot of mention in the paperwork about “joining” different observing sections. I’ve got particular interest in solar (both radio and visual imaging in H-alpha) as well as comets, and deep sky imaging (just starting with that really). So what’s the process for “joining” a section? Is it just a case of emailing the section director?
Welcome to the BAA and to the BAA Solar Section. Just drop me an email to email@example.com so I have your email address and I can send you any information you require and H-alpha report forms. I would welcome your H-alpha observations. What instrument(s) are you using?
That’s great that you are also imaging in H-alpha and I look forward to receiving your work. Please send each image as it is processed rather than all at the end of the month. Please save in jpeg format and keep each file to under 1 Mb in size. When you save the file name can you please include your initials, the date and time UT that the image was taken for example kt_20170202_1511 This helps to identify your work in the Section archive. Thanks!
