The benefit of amateur observations for research in dwarf novae
Author and Affiliation:
La Dous, Constanze(NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, United States)
Abstract: Contributions of amateur astronomers to research on dwarf novae, which are based on carefully monitoring the outburst behavior of these objects, are reviewed. These contributions range from scheduling of observations to the observational basis for research on the dwarf nova outburst mechanism. It is suggested, that, with better equipment, observations of orbital light variations in dwarf novae might be performed by amateur astronomers.
