Achievements in Astronomical Video Data Collection
Observation by amateurs has been traditionally viewed with some suspicion by the professional astronomical community, especially in the case of transient events(1). For example, data from variable star monitoring where information from many observers can be integrated over long intervals, have a higher weight than visual observations of an asteroid occultation. Serious amateurs who choose to contribute to the science face a continuing challenge to maintain the highest standards.
