Astronomy 1230: Observing Forms

To record most of the telescopic observations you will make in this course, you will be expected to use a standard observing form. You can photocopy the blank observing form from your ASTR 1230 Manual, you can pick up copies the Observatory Support Office (Rm. G25),

See the Appendix to the ASTR 1230 Manual for detailed instructions on how to use observing forms. Be careful in filling them out, as they will be graded according to relatively strict standards.

Alternatively: here is a PDF of the Appendix.

After completion, the forms must be signed by the TA on duty. The original forms must be turned in as part the "data" section of your lab write-up.

Note that as part of preparing for the lab work, you are expected to have filled out the upper left hand block of the form BEFORE going to the Student Observatory.
