Thoughts on Searching for Asteroids


In preparation for the 2003 Meeting of the MPAPW I spent some time in studying low resolution spectroscopy as a way to characterize the surface reflection of asteroids. The target was to concentrate on 8-inch telescopes and attempt to characterize magnitude 16 or brighter. I recall the work in preparation for beginning NEO work using an f:2 adaption of the 14-inch telescopes. (pdf document)
