Video Astronomy

Hristo Pavlov

The use of video cameras in astronomy has been increasing steadily in recent years. The lower cost and wide range of applications of modern video cameras are making them an interesting alternative for imaging in astronomy. In this talk, I will discuss the quality of scientific data that can be achieved with video systems in the areas of occultations, astrometry, variable stars and spectroscopy. Recently obtained and specific results will be also presented for all four covered areas.
