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
