What we’re working on: Research Collaborations with NYU Abu Dhabi and AAVSO

On moonless nights, we don’t just do astrophotography to capture the night sky’s beauty. We also focus more on doing research work. The darker the skies, the more precise our measurements will be for astronomical observations in photometry.

As you may already know, the Al Sadeem Observatory provides astronomy professionals and experts a trove of image data of a variety of targets that they wish to focus on. This endeavor has been made official with the two observatory codes we received from the International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center (M43) and the American Association of Variable Star Observers or AAVSO (OAAA) in 2019.

Right now, we’re collaborating with the Center for Astro, Particle, and Planetary Physics at the New York University – Abu Dhabi(NYUAD) and conducting a number of optical follow-up monitoring of X-ray binaries for Asst. Prof. David M. Russell, principal investigator for galaxy components at the Center.

We’ll be monitoring V4641 Sgr and MAXIJ1820+070 until the end of September, while the V404 Cyg monitoring is until the end of October this year.

Another separate research project via the @AAVSO on ASASSN-V J181654.06-202117.6 is also on-going.

We use our MeadeLX850 16” SCT mounted on Skywatcher EQ8 pro mount and SBIG STT-8300MM CCD camera, with standard RVB filters, to gather necessary data that often takes a couple of minutes to several hours for an effective time-series analysis of a particular target. read more
