An introductory paper at the examine capability of small telescopes units the scene for the symposium. The court cases have then been divided into 3 sections. part I: Telescopes and instrumentation; part II: Photometric examine programmes; part III: Spectroscopic learn programmes. the range of subject matters inside each one of those sections indicated the level to which small telescopes have (and can) give a contribution vastly to astronomical study. Dr J.A. Graham's precis of the symposium, which illustrates the possibilities to be had with small telescopes, concludes those court cases. As in all symposia, the significance of the dialogue following each one paper was once realised.
