The Astronomical Society of Australia awards the Berenice and Arthur Page Medal for excellence in amateur astronomy in Australia and its territories, judged on the basis of scientific contributions which have served to advance astronomy. The ASA's presentation of the Page Medal at the NACAA dinner has become a significant event in the convention's programme. NACAA thanks the ASA for their continued support of excellence in amateur astronomy.
The winners of the Medal to date are:
2016 - Mr Roy Axelsen
For high-precision photometric observations and the Fourier analysis of Delta Scuti variables.
2014 - Mr Tim Napier-Munn
For work on binary stars systems and for demonstrating a deep understanding of observational techniques and processes that will progress the field.
2012 - Mr Anthony Wesley
High quality observations of the Jovian and Saturnian atmospheres and the discovery of an impact cloud and atmospheric flash on Jupiter.
2010 - Mr David Gault
For significant observations of Pluto occultations.
2008 - Mr John Broughton
For his systematic survey for southern declination Near Earth Objects, including numerous occultation timings.
2006 - Dr Tom Richards
For his broad ranging CCD photometry lightcurve observations particularly of minor planets, variable stars and exoplanet searches.
2004 - Mr Colin Bembrick
For his significant contribution to astronomy from photometric observations of minor planets.
