  Abstract: The University of West Georgia has acquired several astronomical cameras and guided telescopes to accommodate an increasing number of introductory astronomy students and projects that are being conducted by students. This equipment was purchased using local Tech Fee grants. Beginning in the fall semester 2010, honors astronomy students are required to image two celestial objects and to process those images. A majority of these students are non-science majors. Students are given a CD with their images and the images made by their classmates. During the first two semesters of this requirement, the images made by students are excellent, and the student attitudes about the work are positive.
