Comet ISON May 2013 HFOSC and OMR Observations Collection


Abstract: This dataset contains raw, processed and derived imaging and spectroscopic data of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) taken in May 2013. Photometric data was obtained on May 01 and 04 in V and R Bessel bands using the Himalayan Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera (HFOSC) mounted on the 2.0-m HCT of the Indian Astrophysical Observatory (IAO) of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA), located at 4500 m above sea level, Hanle, Leh, Ladakh. Spectra were taken using the HFOSC instrument on May 01 and 15; and on May 02 using the medium-resolution spectrograph from Optomechanics Research (OMR) mounted on the 2.34-m Vainu Bappu Telescope (VBT) of the Vainu Bappu Observatory (VBO) of the IIA, located at Kavalur, Tamil Nadu, India. Spectroscopic data provides coverage from 380 to 900 nm.
