Advanced Introduction to Infrared and Spitzer


A discussion of what photometry is and why you would want to do it. Includes where to find already-reduced Spitzer photometry.


If you've done photometry before and expect to do it the same way here, BE CAREFUL because IT WILL NOT WORK. The units of Spitzer images can be tricky. This page has a lot of information about these units and how to convert them into more familiar units.

Color-Magnitude and Color-Color plots

A general discussion of color-magnitude and color-color plots.

SED plots

A general discussion of spectral energy distribution (SED) plots.

Advanced Literature Searching

Searching the literature is an essential part of doing research!

Studying Young Stars

Originally background information for the IC 2118 project, but applicable to any Spitzer study of star formation.

Specific IC 2118 information

Specific M81 information

Downloading data with Leopard

leads into

Mosaicking - simple (more than 1 AOR from pbcd prod)

need example using regular photos

Mosaicking - complex (from bcds)
