Astr110 Photography Projects, Fall 2007

Students in Astr110: Planets, Stars, and Galaxies used the Calvin-Rehoboth Robotic Telescope in New Mexico for the images in this project. Each student made an observing plan, requesting up to 20 minutes of data on their target. (This might be images in different colors to make a full color picture, images at one color to get a more sensitive image, or images at different exposure times to show both very bright and faint things.) Once the data were taken, students performed all the calibration steps to make their final image, and wrote a description. Below is a list of the final images. Click on any image to see the full image with description. You can also page from one full image to the next with the "Forward" and "Back" arrows at the top of the image pages.

All images are oriented with North up and East to the left.
