Dispersive space imaging. Slitless dispersive imaging has a long history extending back to the early Schmidt plate objective prism surveys. The set up is an imaging system, a dispersing element (ideally located at a pupil of the imaging system to avoid aberrations, but this is not essential in slow beams) and a filter to delimit the by: Several decades of observations of the most massive and most luminous stars have revealed a complex upper HR Diagram, shaped by mass loss, and inhabited by a variety of evolved stars exhibiting the consequences of their mass loss histories.

This introductory review presents a brief historical overview of the HR Diagram for massive stars, highlighting some of the primary Author: Roberta M. Humphreys.

Most of the LS objects are OB stars, but there are as well a number of A, F, and G supergiants and a few white dwarfs and Wolf Rayet stars. These surveys reached a limiting photographic magnitude of ~, and were based on objective-prism surveys of dispersion Angstrom/mm at H-gamma.

This instrument was used successfully for direct photography, objective prism surveys, and photoelectric photometry. When Cerro Tololo was established, the Michigan Schmidt was sent there to do excellent work on the southern skies, especially objective prism.

Objective prism spectroscopy in combination with wide-field Schmidt telescopes was used extensively for surveys of stellar spectral types, and more recently just a couple decades ago for galaxy surveys.

The ability to see the spectra of many objects at once was a very efficient way to work.

Advances in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Volume 4 brings together numerous research works on different aspects of astronomy and astrophysics. This volume is composed of five chapters, and starts with a description of objective prism and its application in space observations.

In this review we focus on the metal deficient galax. The contributions are written with an emphasis on methods. The volume contains among many other topics recent observational results on redshift surveys of clusters and distributions of galaxies and quasars, together with articles on the importance of these findings for future standards and for theoretical predictions.

Both surveys have now met with success and each have uncovered an object against which the first detections of strong intergalactic HeII absorption at have been made (Jakobsen et al.Tytler et al.

Other successes concern the remarkable UV bright quasar HS+ discovered by Reimers et al. However, other galaxies of the Local Group, namely M31 and M33, still lacked galaxy-wide surveys.

Figure 2 shows the observed WC/WN ratio compared to the Geneva Evolutionary Group’s model predictions. (These were the first complete set of models at different metallicities which included the important effect of rotation.)Cited by: 2.

In his summary of the survey, Zwicky proudly asserted: “for the construction of the inch Schmidt telescope, its housing, a full-size objective prism, a Author: Freeman Dyson.

Markarian UV-excess galaxies are important, since they contain a large fraction of Seyfert 1 objects and actively star-forming systems.
