- Over the course of Spring 2014, we
will be imaging most of the observable 110
Messier Objects with our high resolution and
wide field instruments. These are some of
the most beautiful and interesting objects in
the sky and a favorite target of astro-imagers
Astronomical spectroscopy is extremely
interesting and accessible to students.
With highly accurate mount trackng and modetate
optical quality, off-the-shelf telescopes and
spectrograhs can yield information such as
chemical composition, relative chemical
abundances, surface temperature, stellar
envelope dynamics, relative velocities and more.
