About the General Meeting Presentation
This talk will introduce occultations to the novice observer and provide advanced observers new techniques to record them to accuracies of 0.033 sec. Useful scientific data can be obtained from occultations. Occultation observers regularly publish their results of asteroid profiles and new double star discoveries in peer reviewed journals.
