TieDyeAstronomer Online Talks
The social distancing that came with the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how I interact with the astronomy community. I still love to teach, and learn, but most interaction now happens through Zoom calls and webinars.
On Nov. 6th, 2020 I gave a 45-minute presentation on the drift scanning method — Let the Earth do the work! High Quality Spectra at Low Cost with the Drift Scanning Method — via Zoom during the AAVSO’s inaugural spectrography workshop, ASW2020. During my presentation, I told the story of how I came up with the drift scanning method, gave step-by-step instructions on how to use the method, and displayed some of my drift scanned results — including the resolution of blueshifted absorption lines in P Cygni’s atmosphere. You can watch a recording of that presentation here.
