Thirty years of research with the Baldone Schmidt telescope.


Abstract (from CDS):

We describe the research done with the Baldone Schmidt telescope (80/120/240 cm) of the Radioastrophysical Observatory. The telescope has two objective prisms with reciprocal dispersions 600 Å mm–1 and 1130 Å mm–1 at Hγ. One of the main research projects is the search for and photometric study of galactic carbon stars. The telescope has also been used for novae studies in M 31 and stellar photometry in open clusters and fields of special interest. Comet studies, particularly during the International Halley Watch, proved to be another successful application of the telescope. The archive of the Baldone Schmidt telescope contains nearly 20 000 direct and 2000 spectral plates and films. Despite obvious research opportunities, the full utilization of the telescope and the plate collection in the foreseen future may be hindered by inadequate level of financing.
