Science-Astronomy Projects

Check out the following list of possible astronomy projects. The links are to websites relating to that particular subject that can be used as a starting point for research as they are not comprehensive resources by themselves. Feel free to contact us fo further assistance or scheduling scope-time.


Example works


Read research projects abstracts, conducted by students, via our remote telescope, using the Astro-EDU-Network:

1. Asteroid photometry, modeling and tracking

2. Binary stars photometry & 3D modeling [PDF]
