The ninth Neon Observing school (school at the telescope) will take place at:
Molėtai Astronomical Observatory (Lithuania) from July 14 to 27, 2011
The purpose of the summer schools is to provide the opportunity for young researchers to gain practical experience in observational techniques, data reduction and analysis and the use of virtual observatory tools. Students will carry out small research projects, centered on selected astrophysical topics, in small groups under the supervision of experienced astronomers. These practical exercises will be complemented by lectures on general observational techniques and archival research for both ground and space based astronomy.
The principles are the same as in previous schools: introductory lectures on topics of general interest, work in small groups, execution of a real research project, presentation of the results at the end of the school.
Observations will be made with: - The Moletai 1.65m telescope for photometry
-The Nordic Optical Telescope (2.5m) in remote control for spectroscopy
