Abstract

 

Wellesley College has recently installed a liquid-cooled Photometrics Nubus CCD camera on the Sawyer 24-inch telescope.  The small field with a long focal length telescope requires excellent pointing and new finder charts.  We can easily observe 16th magnitiude stars.  Students and faculty are participating in research on variable stars, supernova photometry, and asteroid research.
