Seminar "Applied Spectroscopy for Amateurs 2020"

I am pleased to announce the "Applied Spectroscpy Seminar for Amateurs.
Venue: Observatory of the "Karl-Fuhlrott-Gymnasium" (Wuppertal, Germany)
Instructor: Ernst Pollmann
Date: 1st - 3th of May 2020


The current situation around the Corona crisis forces me to cancel the seminar.                         It remains to be seen when school operations at the CFG high school will allow for a new schedule. As soon as life has normalized after the crisis and rescheduling is possible, I will inform here.
