n MNASSA : Monthly Notes of the Astronomical Society of South Africa - Amateur optical tracking in South Africa during 1957-2014

Volume 73, Issue 3_4
  • ISSN : 0024-8266



This is the second article of what is planned to be several covering the history of amateur satellite tracking in South Africa during the period 1957 to the present. It will concentrate almost exclusively on optical tracking rather than being a complete record of optical and radio tracking and will only handle observers who reported scientific data to the various tracking networks. Besides Moonwatch several other organisations were interested in amateur optical observations. Only those involving South Africa will be briefly described.
