Graeme Jenkinson gave this presentation at the Astrocon 2017, the annual national conference of USA amateur astronomical groups/organisations. For 2017 it was held over three days just prior to the August total solar eclipse at Casper, Wyoming USA, which was on the path of eclipse totality.
Meet the amazing “D-Team”, who are expanding the work of the Double Star Section
Graeme Jenkinson, Peter Culshaw, Diane Hughes, John Hughes and Des Janke have published a paper on neglected southern multiple systems in the Webb Society Double Star Section Circulars.
Graeme Jenkinson has published a paper on nine neglected southern multiple systems in the Webb Society Double Star Section Circulars.
This paper presents the results of a mid 2015 program of photographic measurements of seven southern multiple stars.
Through mid-2015 measurements were completed of the following two southern multiple stars as listed in the Washington Double Star Catalogue. A pair that appear to be previously unlisted in the WDSC was found just to the west of B2450 and B2451.
This paper details the results of photographic measurement of the triple star system RST5413A-B / HJ4857A-C in Norma over two years – 2014 and 2015.
This paper presents the results of a 2013/early 2014 programme of photographic measurements of seventeen southern multiple stars. The images were obtained using a Meade DSI CCD camera in conjunction with an equatorially mounted 150-mm f/8 refractor and software programme AstroPlanner 2.1 (Rodman).
Through the second half of 2014 measurements were completed of the following southern multiple stars as listed in the Washington Double Star Catalogue. Using a 400mm f4.5 Newtonian reflector fitted with a Meade DSI 2 camera and software program Astroplanner V2.1 (Rodman) the obtained images were analysed using Losse’s Reduc software.
This paper presents the results of a 2014 program of photographic measurements of two multiple star systems (one a double, one a triple) not studied since their initial measurement in 1900.
