Mira spectrum

Dear all,
I am from Reunion Island and following the mira 's spectrum variation with a star analyser. I dont understand the 7600A spike. Is it a process error or a real variation of the star ?

Thanks,
Emmanuel

Hi Emmanuel,

It is close to the very strong O2 telluric band.

Could it be some sort of problem with the telluric line correction in that region ?

Cheers

Robin

Hi Robin,

You're right, i didn't remove the differents telluric spikes from my instrumental response.... and i think i have a calibration issue with the Hydrogen Balmer...
I will restart the process

Thanks,
Emmanuel

Dear All,

Dear All,

I removed the telluric lines from my differents instrumental response, the result seems better even if i have a calibration issue with the Hdelta and gamma. I hope the graph shows the real variation of Mira and not another problem in the process...

Thanks,

Emmanuel
