A Practical Guide to Lightcurve Photometry and Analysis, Paperback/Brian D. Warner

It is a pleasure and an honor to offer a few words of forward to Brian Warner’s guide to photometry. In his preface, he makes a considerable point about amateurs and professionals, and those who dare or deign to step across the line supposedly dividing the two. Here I would like to make a few observations about the two monikers, and suggest that there is not, or at least should not be, a distinction – tween “amateur” and “professional. ” In preparing these remarks I referred to W- ster’s New Collegiate Dictionary (1960 edition; not so new anymore, but that was when my collegiate experience began): am a-teur, n. F., fr. L. amator lover, fr. amare to love. ] 1. One who cultivates a particular pursuit, study, or science, from taste, without pursuing it professionally; also, a dabbler. 2. In sports and esp. athletics, one who is not rated as a professional. Well. . . a “dabbler” eh? “not rated as a professional”? No wonder we have an identity problem here. Somehow in my youth as an amateur astronomer I missed this connotation of the term. To me, the meaning of the term amateur was do- nated by its root, “to love,” that is, one who does what he does out of love of the subject, not for remuneration (to the extent one can get away with that). About the Author Brian Warner has been an astronomer for 40 years, and has been honored with the 2006 AAS Chambliss Award for Amateur Achievement, the 2007 RTMC Astronomy Expo Clyde Tombaugh Technology Achievement Award, and ALPO’s 2013 Walter H. Haas Award. A member of DPS and on the board of trustees of the SAS, he received a Master of Astronomy degree from James Cook University in 2006. He ran the Minor Planet Observer for ten years, and has contributed more than 60 papers to the Minor Planet Bulletin, along with regular articles. He lives in Colorado, USA.
