The Astronomical League's first Arp Peculiar Galaxy Club certificates for CCD Imaging were awarded to Tracy Knauss and Mike Morton in December 1997. Tracy and Mike are members of the Ft. Bend Astronomy Club, near Houston, Texas. The pair worked together as a team to record over 100 Arp peculiar galaxy images using a Cookbook 245+ CCD camera and an eighteen-inch f/4.5 Newtonian reflector. One would position the telescope while the other ran the computer, and then they would trade off, to give each other a rest. Their images were 4 to 6 stacked, with a dark frame and flatfield subtracted.
