Meteor spectra analysis, new version

Introduction Some time ago I presented a python script for the analysis of meteor spectra. It worked as a pipeline, accepting input in a line by line form for the various parameters. It was described here (https://meteorspectroscopy.org/2018/11/18/meteor-spectraanalysed-with-python/ , referenced as m_pipe62). In the meantime it has been improved with a windows graphical user interface (GUI), … Continue reading Meteor spectra analysis, new version

Perseid meteor spectrum at OHP

Spectroscopy workshop at OHP Every year, a spectroscopy workshop is held at the site of the Observatoire de Haute Provence, where around 50 spectroscopists, beginners and experts, meet for a workshop with lectures during th day and observing during the night (www.shelyak.com/ohp-spectro-star-party-2019). I used this opportunity to record meteor spectra in a clear sky and … Continue reading Perseid meteor spectrum at OHP

Meteor spectra analysed with Python

Summary This manual explains the use of a Python script for the analysis of video meteor spectra. The theory behind it has been described in (Dubs and Schlatter, 2015): meteor_spectroscopy_wgn43-4_2015.pdf). Until now, the method had been applied successfully to analyse meteor spectra obtained with high sensitive video cams such as the Watec 902 H2 ultimate … Continue reading Meteor spectra analysed with Python

M20171209 spectrum by Koji Maeda analysed

  Meteor Spectrum Calibration Example Introduction Meteor spectra can give a lot of information about the meteor, such as composition and temperature. However, for amateurs the calibration of the spectra is not easy. Here a method is given for grating spectra recorded with a video camera, which produces linear spectra with constant dispersion. The method … Continue reading M20171209 spectrum by Koji Maeda analysed
