OBJECTIVES (Example #1)


The goals of this research are

  1. to complete construction of a four-dish radio telescope array out of three meter satellite dishes,




  1. to refine our methods of aligning and pointing the dishes in the array,




  1. to automate the motion control of the array,




  1. to develop data analysis software for spectroscopy data and interferometry data,




  1. to map the neutral hydrogen in both the milky way and in other galaxies,




  1. to map the structure of hydrogen clouds using the Doppler Effect, and




  1. to observe the Sun in continuous mode in order to look for interference fringes.

OBJECTIVES (Example #2)


  1. Image V 513 Her, using the 18-inch telescope at the SFA observatory, for at least two complete orbital periods.




  1. Construct a flat field, and set up off axis tracking for the 41-inch telescope.




  1. Image V 803 Aql with the 41-inch telescope for at least two orbital periods.




  1. Reduce the CCD images of both systems using the Mira Pro photometry (Axiom 2000) program in order to observe intensity variations of the system.




  1. Use aperture photometry to observe other stars in the image field in hopes of finding previously undocumented variable systems.

  2. Determine the orbital period by the periodogram method while investigating the methodological changes proposed by Scargle (Scargle 1982).




  1. Use the Wilson-Devinney (Wilson & Van Hamme 2003) differential correction program to obtain a solution of stellar parameters for the systems.




  1. Model the binary star systems using Binary Maker 2.0 (Bradstreet 1993)




  1. Study Stellar Evolution by comparing Wilson-Devinney solution to that of Samec et al. (1993)

OBJECTIVES (Example #3)

The goals of this research are as follows:



  1. Using the 18-inch telescope at the SFA observatory, image four or five known asteroids over the course of several months.

  2. Reduce the CCD images using commercial software and “blink” the images to find an asteroid in the known field of stars.

  3. After alignment with a known field of stars, prepare reports containing the right ascension, declination, and apparent magnitude of an asteroid for submittal to the Minor Planet Center.

  4. Check images for undocumented moving objects, which might potentially be undiscovered asteroids.

  5. Submit electronic reports to the Minor Planet Center on undocumented objects, if found.

  6. Using new equipment obtained by SFA, optimize a method for making asteroid observations and reports.

  7. Use the right ascension, declination, and apparent magnitude of asteroids to determine their orbital elements and size for comparison with published values.
