[38.02] Twelve Years of Monitoring CVs with RoboScope

R. K. Honeycutt (Indiana University)

Some of the techniques developed and used for RoboScope monitoring are reviewed and evaluated for their utility. The scientific emphasis is on quite long-term photometric changes which, for the density of data points required, are impractical to study via conventional techniques. Some examples will be given of unusual and unexpected long-term light curves of CVs that have been studied.

The status of future robotic work at this site will also be discussed, including software migration, and automated spectroscopy.
