Seeking Australian Advanced Imager Collaborator

Hi everyone,

I am interested in finding a partner in Australia for a project that needs good images in May-July 2019. I am in San Diego in the US, but need someone who would not mind taking a series of images over several specific nights in Australia. I tried iTelescopes, but they don't quite have the right imaging combination. What I am looking for is someone with a telescope aperture from 0.3m to 0.5m, and a monochrome, cooled CMOS camera with somewhere around 30 arcminute field of view and a pixel scale of about 0.5 arcsec/pixel. Dark skies or good seeing are nice, but not necessary. Dedicating several entire nights to the observing program are needed.

I will take your images and perform lots of analysis and calculations, ending with a technical paper that should be published in an astronomical journal. I prefer to keep the specific target and observing program confidential, until the program is underway. If interested, please reply to this thread.

Dr. Donald Bruns
San Diego

Hi Dr Bruns, welcome to the Australian forum. I can't help you with this request, but just wanted to drop in and say - you've done some interesting work there and a good number of citations, well done! I look forward to your publication on this one
