AAI Journal -- Sperry Observations

The Eighth Edition of Sperry Observations is Out!

The eighth edition of Sperry Observations, our Journal, has just been published. This latest issue includes informative articles for amateur astronomers at all expertise levels. With so many great articles, there is something for everyone no matter how experienced you may be. We are fortunate that members are willing to share with you their great knowledge and experience. Sperry Observations has a long history of giving voice to those members. This issue is no exception. Note that this issue includes the last article ever written by George Chaplenko. That alone is worth buying this issue.

But that's not all! There are also six color pages of astro-images by AAI members. These are some of the very best results of AAI using a variety of techniques to record those rare, hard to capture photons from the universe. These range from images of the recent transit of Venus across the face of the Sun to elusive deep sky objects. New technologies have brought into amateur hands new tools to image the sky. A representation of the use of these new and different tools is included in this issue.

The articles included in Volume VIII are:

  • The Evolution of Meteor Science -- Mike Luciuk
  • Going Beyond 19th Magnitude! -- Hank Adams
  • Cadwallader Colden: The Man Who Attempted to Do What Newton Wouldn't -- Gordon Bond
  • On The Force of Gravitation -- William G. Poelstra
  • Determining the Position of a Body Orbiting The Sun From Orbital Elements -- Dr. Lewis C. Thomas
  • Hunting For Asteroids -- Hank Adams
  • Antigravity Matters -- George Chaplenko
  • The Chaplenko Problem -- William G. Poelstra
  • The Skies of Discovery, Part II -- Alan P. Witzgall
