Research with Ritchey–Chrétien 400 mm telescope

  1. Feb 12, 2015 #1
    Hello! I'm a first year undergrad student and I have the oportunity to do research durring summer with an Ritchey–Chrétien 400 mm telescope. Can you guys recommand me something to research? I don't even know where to start with my search for interesting topics that are not too hard and that will probably make up a good article for research. I have 3-4 months to decide. Thanks!

    To bounce off of Davenn's suggestion, you could do some exoplanet light curves. I've done one myself using my own 200 mm RC.
