IMPORTANT! As you have probably noticed we have upgraded our gallery and transitioned from our old website. Some accounts on old site were missing name information and they will appear on profile and photo pages as "N/A N/A". If you are one of those users you can easily update your name information if you visit your profile page.

Description

This is a spectrum of Quasar 3C273 as compared to a spectrum of a local star, Theta Leonis. This dramatically shows the redshift of the Hydrogen Beta line in the spectrum. The image was taken through a Celestron 8 scope at f/6.3 using an SBIG ST-7 imager with a CFW-8 filter wheel holding a Rainbow Optics grating in the wheel. Image time: 30 minutes.
