Joachim Köppen, Strasbourg, 2011/12


Follow the procedures to switch-on the ESA-Dresden telescope

If you want to make a full drift scan (may need luck, takes 30 min):

If you want to make a half drift scan (is safer, takes 15 min),

Interpretation (more details):

From this we can compute the solar flux and compare it to other measurements:

The final step is to derive the temperature on the solar surface:
