Title The IAU 2000/2006 changes to celestial reference systems : A bluffer's guide
Abstract No sooner had we all learnt to write ``FK5 J2000'' next to RA,Decs than the IAU went and changed everything. What are ICRS, BCRS, GCRS, CIRS, TIRS and ITRS? And the CIP and CIO? And the mysterious ``quantity s''? There have even been rumours that sidereal time no longer exists. What is going on, and what difference does any of this make to data analysis?
