Astronomical Observing Experience
I led a six-week long multi-site observing campaign using 9 telescopes distributed around the world.
Aim: Detect solar-like oscillations in the red giant stars in the old open cluster known as M67. The campaign has its own web-page.
One month of observation at the Danish 1.54 meter telescope at La Silla, Chile (ESO).
Aim: Detect solar-like oscillations in the G-giant xi Hydra, based on CCD Echelle spectroscopy.
Three weeks of observation at the Danish 0.5
meter Str÷mgren telescope at La Silla.
Purpose: Light-curve observations of GK main-sequence eclipsing binaries.
