                            REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION 
                              on the creation of
                              SCI.ASTRO.AMATEUR
 
 
RATIONALE
 
    A USENET newsgroup solely dedicated to the discussion of topics of
    interest to amateur (or "backyard") astronomers does not currently
    exist. Such discussions are currently carried out on sci.astro. The
    volume of traffic on sci.astro, however, has recently grown to the point
    where many people believe that a new group dedicated to the discussion
    of amateur astronomy would be beneficial.  Additionally, many readers of
    sci.astro have expressed frustration at having to wade through the more
    technical posts on the sciences of astronomy and cosmology to get to the
    ones dealing with amateur astronomy.
 
 
GROUP NAME
 
    The consensus of opinion seems to be that sci.astro.amateur would be the
    best name for this new group.  A few other names have been suggested:
    sci.astro.observe, sci.astro.backyard, and rec.astronomy.  While
    sci.astro.amateur does seem to be the most appropriate name, the merits
    of these other group names should be discussed.
 
PROPOSED CHARTER
 
    The new group will be unmoderated and distributed worldwide.
    
    Topics appropriate for this new group include, but are not limited to:
    
        Observing
            Using the naked eye, binoculars, or telescopes
            The Moon, Planets, Stars, The Sun, Comets, Deep Sky Objects,
                 Constellations, et. al.
           
        Equipment
           Choosing Telescopes/Binoculars
           Choosing Accessories (Finders, Drives, Eyepieces, Filters,
               Observatories, etc.)
        
        Astrophotography
           Traditional
           CCD
           Image Processing
        
        Astronomy Software
           Planetarium Programs
           Deep Sky Programs
           Observatory Programs
           Educational Programs
           
        Tips & Techniques for Amateur Astronomers
        
        Books For Amateur Astronomers
 
    As noted above, posts dealing with the science of astronomy (or
    cosmology) should be directed to sci.astro.  For instance, a post asking
    "How can I see/photograph the collision between Jupiter and comet
    Shoemaker-Levy 9" would be appropriate for sci.astro.amateur,
    while a post asking "What's going to happen when comet Shoemaker-Levy 9
    collides with Jupiter," would be more appropriate for sci.astro.
    
    
CONCLUSION
    
    This RFD is being submitted to news.announce.newgroups in compliance
    with the guidelines set forth in "How To Create A USENET Newsgroup", by
    Ken Kirksey <kkirksey@world.std.com>.  It is being sent to sci.astro,
    sci.astro.planetarium, sci.astro.research, and sci.space.science.
    [[ news.announce.newgroups moderator's note:  I did not have prior approval
    for cross-posting to the later two moderated groups so it is being sent
    to them separately. -- tale ]]
