Observing

A list of telescopes and instruments I have used for my research:

Calar Alto Astronomical Observatory, Spain

  • 1.23m/CCD (remote observations): several nights of optical imaging of NEOs and Jupiter Trojans in 2010-2012 (PI: Mottola)

Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory, Chile

  • SOAR/Goodman: 2 times 0.5 nights of NEO NIR spectroscopy and photometry (PI: Moskovitz)

Discovery Channel Telescope, Arizona

  • 2 half nights (most time lost to weather) of optical photometry of NEOs in 2015 (PI: Trilling)

Kitt Peak National Observatory, Arizona

  • 90″ Bok/PISCES: 4 nights (2 of which lost due to weather) of NIR photometry of Centaurs and TNOs in 2013B (PI: Trilling)
  • 90″ Bok/90Prime: 2 nights (1 of which lost due to weather) of optical photometry of Centaurs and NEOs in 2014B (PI: Mommert)
  • 4m/MOSAIC-3: 0.5 night (lost to weather) of NEO photometry (PI: Moskovitz)

Mauna Kea, Hawai’i

  • UKIRT/WFCAM (queued observations): 270 hrs of NIR photometry of NEOs, Centaurs and TNOs in 2014A-2016A (PIs: Mommert, Trilling, Axelrod, McCarthy)
  • UKIRT/MICHELLE (queued observations): 14 hrs of thermal-infrared observations of NEOs in 2015B (PIs: Mommert, Trilling)

MMT Observatory, Arizona

  • ARIES: 2 nights of NIR photometry of Centaurs and TNOs in 2015A (PI: Mommert)
  • MMIRS: 4 nights (most time lost due to weather) of NIR photometry of Centaurs and TNOs in 2015A (PI: Mommert)

Mt. Graham Observatory, Arizona

  • VATT/VATT4k: 13 nights (9 nights were lost due to weather) of optical imaging of NEOs in 2015A-2016A (PI: Mommert)

Observatorio Astronomico Nacional, San Pedro Martir, Mexico

  • 84 cm/Polima: ~10 nights of polarimetric observations of blazars in 2008/2009 (PI: Heidt)
    results have been published in my diploma thesis
  • 1.5m/RATIR (robotic observations): 360 hrs of vis-NIR photometry of NEOs in 2014B-2016A  (PIs: Pichardo, Butler)

Spitzer Space Telescope

  • IRAC: 6.4 hrs of 3.6/4.5 micron imaging of dead comet candidate NEOs in Spitzer cycle 10 (PI: Mommert, pid: 10109)
  • IRAC: 5.1 hrs of 3.6/4.5 micron imaging of active asteroid 324/P (PI: Mommert, pid: 12043)
