It seems that we have decided to take all Astro questions, including observational astro (though we are shunting astrophotography to photo.SE).
Though the rest of the astro questions (all of them astrophysics questions) fall well within our scope and title, observational astro questions do not.
In lieu of this, let's discuss whether or not we should:
- Change the site name to Physics & Astronomy. Maybe keep physics.SE,astro.SE, and physicsandastronomy.SE as URL aliases (I'd say physics.SE should stay as the main one)
Explicitly add astrophysics and observational astro to our faq(this has already been addressed in the related question)
Note that the final decision will be made after the merger.
