The Ritter Observatory Public Archive of Spectra of α Cassiopeiae


Sample spectrum of the K-type giant α Cassiopeiae in the Hα region.

File names are in the form: observation date followed by serial number for the night, followed by file extension .fits, as in YYYYMMDD.NNN.fits

A log of Ritter observations of α Cas through March 2007 is to be found here. Additional information about each exposure is included.

These spectra have been subjected to normal spectroscopic data processing, namely bias subtraction, flat fielding, extraction, and wavelength calibration. Before you use the data for science, we strongly recommend that you read the image headers and consult the following information.

As of January 2, 2013, this archive contains 180 spectra of this star. Right click on link to download desired file. Zip archives of selected full seasons' data are included.
