Alex Pettit Jr." <[email protected]> Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,sci.astro,sci.astro.amateur Subject: RFD: sci.astro.ccd-imaging Followup-To: news.groups Message-ID: <[email protected]> Approved: [email protected] Archive-Name: sci.astro.ccd-imaging Date: Tue, 14 Apr 1998 08:09:48 GMT Lines: 75 Xref: news.isc.org news.announce.newgroups:9956 news.groups:278337 sci.astro:172822 sci.astro.amateur:102449                       REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)                unmoderated group sci.astro.ccd-imaging  This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of a world-wide unmoderated Usenet newsgroup sci.astro.ccd-imaging. This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural details are below.  Newsgroup line: sci.astro.ccd-imaging	Astronomical digital image capture and processing.  RATIONALE: sci.astro.ccd-imaging  Astronomical digital imaging and processing is gaining interest among amateur astronomers. This is due to its ability to effectively see through night sky light pollution and the increasing availability of less expensive hardware. The creation of a group for the centralization of digital imaging information would encourage and assist others in gaining understanding of this new technology.  While there are groups appropriate for the discussion of digital astronomy imaging, there is currently no distinct location for this information. The astronomy related newsgroups sci.astro and sci.astro.amateur have posting volumes exceeding 125 and 240 posts, respectively, per day. The creation of this group would allow for the focus of related postings (currently 5 to 15 per day) to be maintained within this forum and apart from the diverse base of information in the existing newsgroups.  CHARTER: sci.astro.ccd-imaging  The newsgroup sci.astro.ccd-imaging would be used by those in the astronomy field and hobby to discuss related topics in hardware and software.  This would include the techniques and processes related to the acquisition of the digital data, and the processing of that data into digital images or quantitative astrometric information. Explicitly, it would not be the intended purpose of this newsgroup to be a forum for the posting of image files, but references to their web page links could be included. However, the posting of these image links would be for educative and illustrative purposes only , with information regarding the techniques used to derive and process them a requirement.  Commercial posts while not prohibited should be short and pertinent.  Binary postings would be prohibited.  END CHARTER.  PROCEDURE:  This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes.  In this phase of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups should be raised and resolved.  The discussion period will continue for a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this proposal is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For Votes (CFV) may be posted by a neutral vote taker if the discussion warrants it.  Please do not attempt to vote until this happens.  All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.  This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal".  Please refer to these documents (available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any questions about the process.

This is due to its ability to effectively see through night sky light pollution, its ability to provide high quality images in less time than film photography, and the increasing availability of less expensive hardware.

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES: READ THIS BEFORE VOTING  Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One vote per person, one account per voter.  Votes must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker. Anonymous, forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI forms are considered to be anonymous votes.  Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results post.  The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud. When in doubt, ask the votetaker.  HOW TO VOTE:  Extract the ballot from the CFV by deleting everything before and after the "BEGINNING OF BALLOT" and "END OF BALLOT" lines.  Don't worry about the spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that your reply inserts.  Please, DO NOT send the entire CFV back to me!  Fill in the ballot as shown below.  Please provide your REAL NAME and indicate your desired vote in the appropriate locations inside the ballot.  When finished, MAIL the ballot to: < [email protected] > Just "replying" to this message should work, but check the "To:" line.  Examples of how to properly indicate your vote:    [ YES     ]  example.yes.vote   [ NO      ]  example.no.vote   [ ABSTAIN ]  example.abstention   [ CANCEL  ]  example.cancellation  DO NOT modify, alter or delete any information in this ballot! If you do, the voting software will probably reject your ballot.  If these instructions are unclear, please consult the Introduction to Usenet Voting or the Usenet Voting FAQ at http://www.stanford.edu/~neilc/uvv.  ======== BEGINNING OF BALLOT: Delete everything before this line ======= .----------------------------------------------------------------------- | 1ST CALL FOR VOTES: sci.astro.ccd-imaging | Official Usenet Voting Ballot  (Do not remove this line!) |----------------------------------------------------------------------- | Please provide your real name, or your vote may be rejected.

There were 7 abstentions and 4 invalid ballots.  For a group to pass, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO) votes.  There must also be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.  A five day discussion period follows this announcement.  If no serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.  Newsgroups line: sci.astro.ccd-imaging	Astronomical digital image capture and processing.  The voting period closed at 23:59:59 UTC, 3 Jun 1998.  This vote was conducted by a neutral third party.  Questions about the proposed group should be directed to the proponent.  Proponent: B. Alex Pettit Jr. <[email protected]> Votetaker: Neil Crellin <[email protected]>  RATIONALE: sci.astro.ccd-imaging  Astronomical digital imaging and processing is gaining interest among amateur astronomers. This is due to its ability to effectively see through night sky light pollution, its ability to provide high quality images in less time than film photography, and the increasing availability of less expensive hardware. The creation of a group for the centralization of digital imaging information would encourage and assist others in gaining understanding of this new technology.  While there are groups appropriate for the discussion of digital astronomy imaging, there is currently no distinct location for this information. The astronomy related newsgroups sci.astro and sci.astro.amateur have posting volumes exceeding 125 and 240 posts, respectively, per day. The creation of this group would allow for the focus of related postings (currently 5 to 15 per day) to be maintained within this forum and apart from the diverse base of information in the existing newsgroups.  CHARTER: sci.astro.ccd-imaging  The newsgroup sci.astro.ccd-imaging would be used by those in the astronomy field and hobby to discuss related topics in hardware and software in digital imaging. This would include the techniques and processes related to the acquisition of the digital data, and the processing of that data into digital images or quantitative information. CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is the current digital imaging technology, but it is not intended that this be an imposed discussion topic limitation.  Explicitly, it would not be the intended purpose of this newsgroup to be a forum for the posting of image files, but references to their web page links could be included.

There were 7 abstentions and 4 invalid ballots.  For a group to pass, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO) votes.  There must also be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.  A five day discussion period follows this announcement.  If no serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.  Newsgroups line: sci.astro.ccd-imaging	Astronomical digital image capture and processing.  The voting period closed at 23:59:59 UTC, 3 Jun 1998.  This vote was conducted by a neutral third party.  Questions about the proposed group should be directed to the proponent.  Proponent: B. Alex Pettit Jr. <[email protected]> Votetaker: Neil Crellin <[email protected]>  RATIONALE: sci.astro.ccd-imaging  Astronomical digital imaging and processing is gaining interest among amateur astronomers. This is due to its ability to effectively see through night sky light pollution, its ability to provide high quality images in less time than film photography, and the increasing availability of less expensive hardware. The creation of a group for the centralization of digital imaging information would encourage and assist others in gaining understanding of this new technology.  While there are groups appropriate for the discussion of digital astronomy imaging, there is currently no distinct location for this information. The astronomy related newsgroups sci.astro and sci.astro.amateur have posting volumes exceeding 125 and 240 posts, respectively, per day. The creation of this group would allow for the focus of related postings (currently 5 to 15 per day) to be maintained within this forum and apart from the diverse base of information in the existing newsgroups.  CHARTER: sci.astro.ccd-imaging  The newsgroup sci.astro.ccd-imaging would be used by those in the astronomy field and hobby to discuss related topics in hardware and software in digital imaging. This would include the techniques and processes related to the acquisition of the digital data, and the processing of that data into digital images or quantitative information. CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is the current digital imaging technology, but it is not intended that this be an imposed discussion topic limitation.  Explicitly, it would not be the intended purpose of this newsgroup to be a forum for the posting of image files, but references to their web page links could be included. However, the posting of these image links would be for educative and illustrative purposes only , with information regarding the techniques used to derive and process them included.  Commercial posts while not prohibited should be short and pertinent.  Binary postings would be prohibited.
