Filters For Star Formation

APO 3.5-m SPICam
Graduate student Lisa May Walker installs several filters for use on her observing run with the SPICam instrument on the Apache Point Observatory (APO) 3.5-m telescope as part of Steve Majewski's Astronomical Techniques class. She and astronomer Kelsey Johnson are studying star formation in nearby spiral galaxies. The APO 3.5-m is one of many telescope facilities for which UVa's Astronomy Department has direct access.
