Tips for Measurers

In preparition of an informal meeting of BAA Jupiter Section members that took place in spring 2002, I compiled a text which comprises some thoughts and hints I had in organisational and technical respect.

The paper was completely rewritten in late 2006, and revised in early 2009:
