Report on Astronomy III: Seminar My column this month is a review of the seminar on Astronomy III in Tucson, Arizona, 29 January through 1 February 1979. Six sessions focused on the latest instruments and techniques for visible, infrared, and ultraviolet astronomical observations and details of data reduction and image enhancement necessitated by these new techniques, I was surprised by the breadth of peripheral subjects with which today's astronomer must be familiar. Computer techniques and programming, instrument design, imaging tubes, infrared and ultraviolet detectors, image extraction and enhancement, cooled optics, and space technology were some of the topics covered.
