Venus Amateur Observing Project
Submission of Images
Venus ground-based image Active ArchiveAmateur astronomers are invited to upload their original observation results of Venus in the central Venus ground-based image Active Archive (VAA). The VAA allows you to both upload and retrieve images and has been set up to collect images of Venus in such a way that they are useful for scientists (uncompressed images, no compositions). When used, your work will be mentioned and properly credited in the related scientific publications!
Processed ImagesIn addition to the VAA, which aims for your original images of Venus (i.e. no mosaics or colour compositions), we also encourage you to submit your final processed results to the Venus section of the British Astronomical Association (BAA), coordinated by Dr Richard McKim.
Generally the BAA is accepting high quality JPEG images, with either annotation of details of the observation on the image or in an attached file. This should include the following information:
To facilitate use of the images by the VEX team it is also preferable to have images in FITS format with all image details recorded in the FITS header.
