Practical - Practical Spectroscopy

  • Coleshill Village Hall Barracks Hill Amersham, England, HP7 0LN United Kingdom (map)

To kick the year off a session on a new area for us – spectroscopy. Dr Lee Sproats is coming along to talk to us; now with David Hinds/Baader UK, he will be demonstrating a complete Baader DADOS spectroscopy kit to us - what it is, how it works, what the different ports and knobs are for, and how to use them. He will then cover how DADOS can be attached to a telescope and how to set it up to get spectra and how the spectra data are reduced. If the sky is clear he will attempt to take spectra of a couple of stars. If the sky is cloudy he will take spectra of internal lights and also get some raw spectral data and calibration files and then go through the data reduction.
