[83.15] Be Star Monitoring Using a Small Aperture Telescope and Fiber-fed Spectrograph

S.J. Austin (University of Central Arkansas)

Initial results are reported from a Be star monitoring project developed for undergraduate student research involvement at a small undergraduate university using a small aperture telescope and a custom-built fiber-fed spectrograph. Beginning in 2003 June, 0.8 Angstrom/pixel resolution spectra of the H-alpha line for over forty Be stars (Omi Aqr, 4 Aql, V923 Aql, V1294 Aql, Nu 2 Boo, 24 CVn, Gamma Cas, 4 CrB, Beta Cyg, 11 Cyg, 28 Cyg, 55 Cyg, 59 Cyg, 66 Cyg, V2136 Cyg, 1 Del, CX Dra, Omi Her, Sigma Her, 4 Her, 11 Her, 88 Her, 48 Lib, Chi Oph, Zeta Oph, 51 Oph, 66 Oph, Eta PsA, V4024 Sgr, 64 Ser, Delta Sco, QR Vul, 12 Vul, 20 Vul, 25 Vul, HD142184, HD165174, HD169033, HD170235, HD174179, HD181615, HD184279, HD195554, HD201733) have been obtained. H-alpha line profile velocities and evolution are shown.

Funding has been provided by the UCA University Research Council and the Arkansas Space Grant Consortium.
