Video of talks during OHP spectroscopy workshop

Hello,

 

We are organizing a spectroscopy workshop every year at Observatory of Haute Provence, south of France. This year we have several talks (some from AAVSO members!), a beginner's course by François Cochard and astrophysics course by Steve Shore, professional astronomer from Pise university... and we tape them!

 

Several videos are already available - see the list/link on our web site:

PS: some talk are in french translated in english; or in english translated in french due to the international attendance of the workshop...

 

Cordialement,

Olivier Thizy

Hi Olivier,

Thank you for the link for the video's on the Shelyak site, I especially enjoyed the talk by Steve Shore on 'binary systems, accretion disks' and David Boyd's talk on the 2014 eclipse of EE Cep.

Very interesting and imformative.

Douglas.

Douglas,   thanks for the

Douglas,

 

thanks for the comments. David Boyd made an interesting talk today regarding his Radial Velocities measurement with a LISA spectrograph. Using Cross Correlation Function technics, he was able to go down around 5km/s while resolution of the spectrograph is around 250km/sec! He did a great job of showing the scientific interest for such technic.

Steve Shore's talk today was about looking at several amateur spectra and highlighting the content, explaining some important astrophysics behind. We took a step further from simple atoms to molecules! :-)

Note that the talks are now done at OHP and all videos are now on-line and listed here:
