Basics of observational astronomy

Observation is the experimental and thus a fundamental part of modern astrophysics. A good knowledge of observational techniques and methods remains important for any astronomer, since they are critical to a better use of the existing facilities. Furthermore history has shown that the development of new instrumentation often leads to new and unexpected results.
These classes aim at providing the basic competences in common techniques and method, such as imaging, photometry, spectroscopy and interferometry, and introduce existing components and facilities, and discuss present limits and future developments.
