                     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.

RATIONALE: sci.astro.ccd-imaging

Astronomical digital imaging and processing is gaining interest among

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.

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.

END CHARTER.

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.

END CHARTER.
