Spectroscopy is a very important branch of Science, which reveals many properties of any object by dispersing and studying the light coming from it. This has very important applications in Astronomy too. Through spectroscopy, we can study and find out many physical properties of the stars, galaxies etc. which cannot be studied at close range. It however remains a neglected branch as far as amateur astronomers are concerned.
Iucaa , in collaboration with Jyotirvidya Parisanstha , Pune, is hosting a special webinar for all Amateurs Astronomers who are interested in including Spectroscopy in their repertoire of skills. This will be a great opportunity to know how to get good results with spectroscopy done using amateur telescopes and some simple tools and software. This is planned on the 28th May, 2014. We hope that those invited will join us at IUCAA, Pune 6.30 pm onwards.
To ensure the seriousness of the effort, the participation is by invitation. Please register online if you would like to attend... at this link - http://goo.gl/ciwGZp
