New Guide to the Electromagnetic Spectrum in Astronomy
Curious about the spectrum of light that can be used in astrophotography?
An article entitled “Guide to the Electromagnetic Spectrum in Astronomy” now appears in on the website astrobites.org.
This short, but comprehensive, introductory article mentions all ranges of the electromagnetic spectrum utilized for astronomical observation. This article focuses on the following questions:
- What astrophysical systems emit this radiation?
- What physical processes does this radiation trace?
- How is this radiation observed, and what are some real-world facilities dedicated to probing this wavelength range?
And check out some stunning examples of astrophotography!
Optical Filters for Astronomy
Chroma Technology manufactures the highest quality astronomy filters with durable, sputtered hard coatings using single substrates of the best glass, eliminating the need for laminations. All primary filter coatings are applied on the front surface and anti-reflection coatings on the rear surface to prevent ghosting and to maximize transmission.
