Description:
Not only are amateurs capable of helping in the discovery of exoplanets through collaborations with professionals, but amateurs are well-positioned to contribute to the discovery of Earth-like exoplanets! This book is meant for amateurs who want to observe exoplanet transits, and who may eventually want to participate in exoplanet discoveries. There are many ways for amateurs to have fun with exoplanets; some are educational, some could contribute to a better understanding of exoplanets, and others are aimed at new discoveries.
