Planetary Group Seminar: Planetary Science with the large Binocular Telescope (Al Conrad)
We will review capabilities available at the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) for conducting programs in Solar System Science. Along with support for non-sidereal tracking, guiding, and wave front sensing, LBT provides a large collecting area (11.8 meter equivalent diameter) and the potential for high angular resolution (a 23-meter baseline). We will present results from observations that take advantage of these unique capabilities.
