The Ritter Observatory Public Archive
Sample spectrum of the supergiant star ρ Cassiopeiae in the Hα region. To see a mosaic of all 9 échelle orders, click here.
New spectra are continually being added.
- In publications employing data from this archive, users are requested to acknowledge that this archive is supported by the National Science Foundation Program for Research and Education with Small Telescopes (PREST).
- Please provide citations to any publications employing Ritter data to the observatory director.
All files are in FITS format.
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 consult the following information.
