New types of object added to the spectroscopy database

Last weekend I validated a big batch of new objects which had been added to the spectroscopy database since the start of the year. In doing so I realised that we were missing some object classifications which I have now added. So there are now a few extract 'object subtypes' to choose from when uploading your spectra, for example 'Spectroscopic Binary'.

If you ever spot any new types of objects that need setting up then please let me know.

Andy, do you need us to revisit and re-classify?

Hi Tony,

There is no need to re-classify your objects. I did this as part of the checks that I run, though if you do ever spot anything that should be changed then just let me know.

Just look for the new subtypes when uploading spectra, and also let me know if you need any new ones setting up.

Cheers,

Andy
