Hi Dustin or other people, 

I am an astronomer with the US National Park Service. I am writing a paper on a new camera system we developed to image the night sky to quantify light pollution in national parks. As a part of the data processing, we used your web service through API. 

How can I give you the proper credit in the paper that I am writing? 

Thank you,

David W Hogg

Wow I’m so pleased! The primary citation for the project is this:

Please cite that! But if you also want to include this line in your acknowledgment, we wouldn’t object:

This project made use of the system for automatic identification and calibration of astronomical images.

Here's the citation information:

If you are able to share a preprint when the paper is ready, we'd love to see it -- it's always great to see what people do with!

Best wishes,

Hi David, 

The link takes me to a google scholar search result with 1,740 papers. Do you want me to cite this search result or some specific papers? 

I'll also include the statement in my acknowledgment :)
