We are going to meet in the lecture theatre on the first and Third Friday of each month at 7:30. It would be good if you could bring any images with you that you have taken, as well as laptop, so we can look at and compare what we are doing.
Remember our targets are on the list, but particularly gamma cas, delta cas, alpha auriga, beta auriga, alpha ori, and anything else in orion. Find an a class star close to the stars you are imaging to use for calibration.
There is also the comet near Orion which would be a very good target and will be the focus of our session on the third week in January.
January - week 1 - calibrations on any stars you have and comparison of our work so far.
week 3 - spectroscopy demo by David and looking at comet lovejoy.
