Variable Stars South

 

VSS is an international association of astronomers, amateur and professional, interested in researching the rich and under-explored realm of southern variable stars. VSS covers most techniques of variable star research: visual observing with binoculars or telescopes, imaging with DSLRs and astronomical CCD cameras, and even spectrography. Its research work is project-oriented, often involving professional/amateur collaboration. VSS is directed by Stan Walker of Awanui, New Zealand, but its 'home' is its website, visit it for further information and contacts.
