Physics and Astronomy 108 Request for Data from Our Telescopes
Email address *
What is your name? *
Please use your full name as it would be on our class roll so that we can identify you.
Your answer
Which lab section are you in? *
Please select the section you are enrolled in. We need this to let your assistant know about your request so that the data will be available for you in your lab class.
What are you interested in finding out by using a telescope to provide data? *
Select one or more of the following suggestions, or add one one your own. These are provided to help you imagine what may be possible, and to help us provide appropriate data for you. We invite other ideas too.
Required
What object would you like to see data on? *
In order to assist you, we need a specific choice. If it is a planet, simply name it here. If it is a star, give an identification that we can use to locate it for you. Other objects use a common name, an "NGC" catalog name, or some other identifier that is unique. If you can find the object in Google with this name, that should work for us.

This object is observable *
An object with positive declination on the celestial sphere is above the celestial equator and most easily observed from a site north of Earth's equator. If its declination is negative, then it is best seen from the south. Objects near the equator may be seen from either hemisphere. Check the astronomical coordinates of the object you want to observe and from those decide where you have to be to see it.
This object is in the *
If it is now behind the Sun we cannot see it this semester. We may be able to provide data from our archive however. If in doubt, try using Stellariium to tell whether it is in the evening sky now.
I would prefer data that *
Color images may answer your general questions and are very good at telling you about the differences between stars and fine features on planets. If you want to measure a position or a magnitude quantitatively, you will need scientific image data. We will provide tools to work with those data, or you can do it yourself on your own computer. Tables may be useful if there is a lot of data or it is too difficult for you to measure yourself. In that case, we will help guide how to use the data. If there is something else or you need more information, select other ...
If possible, which telescope would you like data from?
This is optional, and would help us decide what to offer if there are different possibilities.
