Astronomy Report

Name: Léa Bourgély

Crew: 293

Date: 07/03/2024


Telescope Requested: Solar Observatory

Objects to be Imaged this Evening: None

Images submitted with this report: None

Additional Notes:

1. I spent the morning in the solar observatory : the upper dome opened completely, I was able to observe.

2. I took many pictures of sunspots, I am working on them to see how to stack them.

3. I am improving my code : I prepared a MatLab code to follow sunspots precisely and get their velocity, but I need to change many things because I don’t have a full image of the Sun. It’s a lot of mathematical work, but it is improving.

4. I tried to process NGC3587 using AstroImageJ but there were many issues with the WCS for the stacking. Any idea of how to solve that ?
