Stardome’s Research Programme
what we do and why
Presenter – Grant Christie
This talk will provide an elementary overview of Stardome’s research programme.
Since 2004, Stardome has contributed to the discovery of many planets orbiting very distant stars, advancing the understanding of how planetary systems are formed.
We have also been studying what may be the most massive binary star system in the galaxy – WR20a.
Grant will briefly introduce the telescope, the CCD camera (with 8 filters) and how we make precision measurements of the brightness of stars.
