Pleiades M45 HD 23479 Star Spectrum
Spectral Atlas and Spectral Classification
Spectral Sequence of Stars Color Chart
Bright Star Spectra Index
- The above screen capture the spectra graph was created by
MaxIm DL V5.07
graph window. The pointer indicates the star at
spectral order zero
and the horizontal line is the measurement of the spectra at the blazed
spectral order plus one that is to the right of the star.
- A MaxIm DL V5.07 measurement line is placed on spectral order of plus one and the pixel values are shown in the graph window. The pixel locations along X axis represents the wavelength of the star light. In the graph the short wavelengths are on the left and the long wavelengths are on the right.
- The upper right identification window is from Cartes du Ciel 2.76c

The following test pattern is to help you adjust your monitor to best view the CCD astro images.
The test pattern is used for adjusting monitor brightness, and contrast.
Adjust monitor brightness and contrast to see all 16 gray scale levels.
The most important adjustment when viewing astro images is to see the differences in all of the black bands.
