ASTR 110 Photography Projects
Fall 2018

Students in ASTR 110: Planets, Stars, & 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 could potentially 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 positions to make a mosaic.) Once the data were taken, students performed all the calibration steps to make their final image, and wrote a description.

Below are links to the students' projects. Some students observed star clusters, others observed nebulae, and others observed galaxies.
