    Astrophotography with a Large Dobsonian Telescope and Color CCD Camera

    Wed at 07:30 PM
    Open to Public

    Former SAS President Denis Janky is a long-time visual observer who has been dabbling with astrophotography since early 2014. He uses a Mallincam Universe color CCD camera with an Obsession dobsonian telescope. The Obsession has a tracking system, but is designed for visual observing. The Mallincam has capability for real-time observation on a computer screen and is also a full-fledged color CCD camera. Denis plans to discuss his setup and show how he acquires images. He will also ... more

    Taking the Temperature of the Universe

    Wed at 07:30 PM
    Open to Public

    Astronomy PhD student Phoebe Upton Sanderbeck will present about how measuring the temperature of the universe can help us understand its development. The intergalactic medium (IGM) is the network of gas between galaxies that contains most of the matter in the universe. It is difficult to directly observe, but we can learn about the IGM through indirect detections and theoretical predictions. From indirect detections of the IGM through quasar spectra, we are able to determine the ... more
