Amateur spectroscopy on show at AAS meeeting.

Posted by Robin Leadbeater at 18:24 on 2011 Jan 12

A poster covering high resolution spectroscopy of the eclipse of epsilon Aurigae was presented yesterday at the American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle (The biggie, around 2500 professional astronomers attend) It covers over 480 spectra taken by 8 amateurs over the past two years. Initial feedback suggests it was well received. It can be downloaded from my website here.http://www.threehillsobservatory.co.uk/astro/AAS217_poster_257_04_origin... Robin

Robin,Fantastic work and very nicely presented. A really good demonstration of what the determined amateur can do. Any chance of writing a summary of the poster for the BAA Journal?Nick.
