BSM Section web-page is on-line

The Bright Star Monitor Section now has its own web-page.  It is included with the other Sections on the “For Observers” page located from the Observing Sections drop-down menu.  Please take a look.  It will be a work-in-process for a little while and we are looking for your comments and suggestions.

The AAVSO Bright Star Monitor telescopes are a subset of the larger AAVSOnet network which are located at sites around the world. Each BSM site is equipped with a small refractor, a high grade astronomical camera (SBIG CCD / ZWO CMOS) and standard Astrodon photometric filters.  They are operated robotically and are locally supported by AAVSO member volunteers.  Each telescope can perform precise photometric measurements of the sky’s relatively bright stars, those in the range of 3 to 13 V magnitude. It is free to use by all AAVSO members.

We also look forward to your proposals for observing projects. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
