Q&A: General Astronomy and Space Science
Do you have a data table from which the electromagnetic
spectrum illustration ( http://chandra.harvard.edu/graphics/resources/illustrations/absorption_72.jpg
) was made?
This figure was adapted from a NASA publication.
The data for the IR could probably use some modification, to
take into account the difference between Mauna Kea and Kitt
Peak. For this region of the spectrum, you might want to look
A. Cox, Allen's Astrophysical Quantities, (4th Edition,
Athlone Press, London, 2000) p. 123, and 145
