The Tony Fairall Teaching Observatory

Teaching Observatory Blog

With the 2014 academic year in progress, both the 2nd year undergraduate students (AST2003H) and the 3rd year undergraduate students (AST3002F) are using the Teaching Observatory again. For the 3rd year students, we will use the SBIG Self Guiding Spectrograph (SGS) for the first time this year, taking spectra of bright stars in the southern sky and characterising the new spectrograph.

Some of the highlights of the 2014 curriculum observing sessions will be posted on the web site of the Tony Fairall Teaching Observatory in the course of the academic year.
