Comet ISON February 2013 HFOSC and FOSC Observations Collection


Abstract: This dataset contains raw, processed and derived imaging and spectroscopic data of comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) taken in February 2013. Imaging data were acquired on February 19, 21 and 22 in R and I Bessel bands using the Himalayan Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera (HFOSC) mounted on 2-m Himalayan Chandra Telescope (HCT), Indian Astrophysical Observatory (IAO), Hanle, Leh, of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIA). Spectroscopic data were taken on February 09 using the Faint Object Spectrograph and Camera (FOSC) mounted on the 40-inch telescope (T40) of the Wise Observatory of the Tel-Aviv University, Israel.
