Rutgers University Department of Physics and Astronomy
This course provides an introduction to the tools and techniques of modern observational astronomy at visible wavelengths. We will use the 20-inch optical telescope of the Schommer Observatory to carry out astronomical imaging and spectroscopic observations, and analyze these observations using professional image-processing software.

Mr. Jean Walker, 332W Physics & Astronomy Bldg,
Lab 1 is due Thursday, September 11. Getting the class key-card access to Serin 401 is still in progress. If you want to get into the classroom to use the computers to work on the lab, I will be in my office much of the weekend.
If you do not see your name here, you need to tell me what times you are available. For Lab 2 the times are 7:30 - 9:30 PM and 9:30 - 10:30 PM because of the late sunset.
