Wide-field 3D Astronomy
« on: November 29, 2017, 04:46:57 PM »
If you want to watch a great ~1/2 hour video (with wonderful images) on how 3D astronomy is now being done (spectra per small chip area) over a pretty wide field, click on the video (upper right) describing the new MUSE system at:

It will be a long time before amateurs are doing this in their backyards but it is very exciting.
Cheers,
