Astr111 Photography Projects
Fall 2011

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 positions to make a mosaic image.) 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 student projects. These include images of star clusters, nebuae, galaxies, and Jupiter. Click on any link below to see a full image with description. You can then page from one full image to the next with the "Forward" and "Back" arrows at the top of the image pages.
