Astr212 Imaging Projects
Spring 2015

Students in ASTR 212: Galactic Astronomy and Cosmology used the Calvin-Rehoboth Robotic Telescope in New Mexico for the images in this project. Each student made an observing plan, requesting up to 2 hours 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, while others observed galaxies. Click on any image below to see a bigger image with description and a detailed report about the astrophysics. You can then page from one full image to the next with the "Forward" and "Back" arrows at the top of the image pages.
