Learning outcomes

After completing the course the students should be able to:
(1) Identify and extract raw data together with the corresponding calibration frames from the ESO Science Archive that are relevant to the astrophysical science question being studied;
(2) Reduce these data using a relevant pipeline provided by ESO (use e.g. high-resolution UVES and near-infrared ISAAC spectroscopic data as examples);
(3) Carry out photometry in fully-reduced astronomical imaging observations including both relative photometry and absolute photometry with the full photometric calibration;
(4) Carry out both absolute and relative astrometry in fully-reduced astronomical imaging observations;
(5) Carry out automatic source detection, characterization and photometry in astronomical imaging observations;
(6) Produce a written course report
