[33.05] First Results from The Amateur Sky Survey

M. Richmond (Princeton U.)

As a first test of the TASS cameras, members have concentrated on images of several 3x3-degree sections of the celestial equator. I will describe the properties of our dataset, and explain the methods we use to extract and combine measurements from different sites and times. One of our fields has been studied by the FASTT project, which identified variable stars within our magnitude range; we will compare our results in that field with theirs.
