New capability - slitless grating to ID new/transient objects
AAVSONet telescope W28 at Astrokolkhoz has a new capability: a slitless grating to help identify/characterize new and transient objects.
But we need help. We need people that are experienced in spectral classification and analysis to lend their expertise to the images we collect.
More information about the grating can be found at
At this early stage in the game I've imaged a few fields to veryify proper operation. But I need guidance as to the best calibration targets (or spectral types) I should image in order to establish a calibration library. Or is that a bad approach?
And perhaps in the future we may establish a program of recurring coverage...tailored to the capabilities of this system.
Thanks in advance.
