How to get into Asteroid Hunting
Posted 28 September 2022 - 09:55 PM
My question is what do I need to actually contribute and what sources are out there on how to start? Most photos and comments I see are of folks with way to much invested. There's got to be ways I can contribute on a budget. Thanks in advance.

You can also continue to shoot astro shots and then run the images through Tycho Tracker, which will find and identify any asteroids in your photos, even ones that have not been discovered. "Yes honey I am really doing scientific work!"

@ram812, thank you for that note. Sent CSS an email asking how to get started. If unresponsive, will email MPC as well.
@Ku8475, thank you for this thread. You've spelled out my thoughts exactly. I hope you were able to get some data to blink.
