Resources for astronomical and scientific work and research

Here you’ll find the latest tutorials we have on image processing and computational guides for astronomy research, using the data by our very own Nieves Observatory.

I. Selecting appropriate objects for imaging

Not all objects in the sky can be studied using the observatory. Find out how we can best select an appropriate object for imaging and research.

II. Operating the ACP Observatory System

There are some do’s and dont’s for using the observatory remotely. See our step-by-step guide here.

III. Tri-Color Imaging

Before Processing

Raw images from CCD cameras installed in telescopes are black-and-white, and you cannot say much of an object.

Post Processing

Depending on the filters you use (often R,G,B, but also H-alpha, S-II and O-III), you can observe the details of astronomical objects post-processing.
