MIRA Images and Spectra of the Deep Impact Comet Collision
A Deep Survey for Classical T Tauri Stars
This paper describes the discovery of 63 new H-alpha emissions stars and the estimation of the average space-density of these stars in the area.
Paper: A Deep Objective Prism Survey for Classical T Tauri Stars in the σ Orionis Region
The Funding of Synergy Between Small and Large Telescopes
Arguing the importance of small telescopes in current astronomical research.
IRAS Diameters and Albedos
The paper presents the methods used to obtain new diameters, albedos, and beaming parameters for 654 asteroids.
MIRA Near-Infrared Stellar Atlas
This atlas contains plots of near-infrared (5800 - 9000 Angstroms) spectra of MK standard stars or stars well classified by expert classifiers. The motivation for this atlas was to extend the MK classification system into a region of the spectrum better matched to modern silicon-based astronomical detectors.
