Astr111 Photography Projects, Fall 2009

Students in Astr111: The Solar System 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 name 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. Within each student's webpage, click on the image itself to see a larger version of the image (if available).

All images are oriented with North up and East to the left. The field of view of our camera is 21.5 by 14.5 arcminutes. Some of the images are mosaics of four to six fields of view.
