Main interests: blazars, comets, TNOs
Currently working on:
The 2015/16 outburst of the blazar OJ287
Cometary light curves, particularly long-term behaviour and the correlation between visual magnitude estimates and CCD photometry and techniques for improving cometary CCD photometry.
Particularly interested in light curves and variability (especially outbursts of quasars and comets).
Solar system studies (comets, TNOs)
Active Galactic Nuclei (quasars/blazars)
Mauri Valtonen (Tuorla Observatory) and the OJ287 international monitoring team.
