I’ve take a few spectra of Be stars and I’m in the process of comparing them with examples downloaded from BeSS in order to assess whether I’m on the right track (and confident enough to submit).
I’ve produced ISIS final (fits) image files that have been calibrated etc (using nearby ‘Miles’ B stars). They look ‘right’.
The attached two plots below showing my (Alpy) output compared to the four plots in the BeSS Db (for this star HD42529).
Firstly everyone has zero’d in on the H alpha line detail, implying this is the only region of interest. Is that the case? Is it pointless submitting a complete, lower resolution spectrum?
Does ISIS produce a final ‘standardized’ file capable of submission? In my case “_hd42529_20170112_761_TRO.fit”?
