For the first time held at Observatory Haunsberg near Salzburg Austria from May 30-June 1, 33 people from 13 countries, 3 continents attended.

 

This is a new facility. The 3 days consisted of talks in English in a large lecture theatre, from amateur and professional spectroscopists. Baader Planetarium and Shelyak attended.

 

The 2 observatories contain a 40cm ASA RC with Echelle spectrograph and a 1m ASA EQ 1000 RC F7 equatorial telescope. We had 1 night observing on the 1m telescope viewing many Messier objects. The central star in M57 was an easy target for the 1m, M81 and M104 showed lots of detail, in very dark transparent skies with excellent seeing, and no light pollution.

 

All in all, I learn’t a lot and made new friends. This symposium proved to be both productive and important, for the future of international am-pro collaboration.

 

I would like to thank the organisers Manfred Schwarz, Herbert Puhringer and Ernst Pollman for their hard work and efforts in making this a success, and all those who attended.

 

I encourage other likeminded people to support the next symposium.
