Possible Measurements / Studies

  • Measurement or study along the way that improves imaging but could form small report for undergrads

  • Noise characterisation of each camera (histograms, frequency of defects)
  • Tracking accuracy
  • Tracking accuracy vs scope RA / dec

Example Images

  • Just attach to page and they'll appear here.
  • Examples from internet that a realistic possibilities
  • Likely copyright so private only
