    Just been reading David Boyd’s excellent paper Spectroscopic and photometric study of the Mira stars SU Camelopardalis and RY Cephei”    The quality of the observations and the attention to detail in the analysis are exemplary.

    Hi Robin,

    Thanks for your kind comments but I’m not sure it justifies such fulsome praise! It was an interesting project to study the behaviour of these stars in a way which is unlikely to be carried out by professional astronomers because it involves committing resources and maintaining regular observations over years. Amateurs on the other hand are well placed to carry out this sort of project.

    Well let’s just say i’ve seen a lot worse !   It would make a good template for anyone considering undertaking a similar sort of project 

    Cheers
