Available Astronomy Research Topics?

  1. Sep 27, 2012 #1
    My astronomy lab group is planning a research project. We will have access to a .6 m reflecting telescope in the northern hemisphere as well as I believe a .6 or larger reflector in Australia remotely.

    We are curious how likely or practical it would be to be able to find research subjects in the sky that will not already have a lot of information already published on them, yet still be able to obtain a decent amount of information with the telescopes we have access to.

    If anyone has any insight or knows of how to find this information it would be a great help. Our group is fairly ambitious and wants to make the most of this lab.

    Thanks
