Planetary Group Seminar
In the seminars of the Department of Planets, scientists, post-doctoral students, and guests report on discoveries and research results of the missions and projects concerning planets, comets, asteroids, and planetary dust.
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.
