Description Since the CCD technique became financially reachable for amateur astronomers, they can cover topics of professional science. Mainly in the time-domain astronomy, such as variable star research, their help is invaluable. We focus on a cooperation between amateur and professional astronomers in the Czech Republic, give some examples of successful projects and propose new programs that can benefit from such cooperation and bring high-quality results.
