A new observing night starts at
Télescope Bernard Lyot
atop Pic du Midi, on which NARVAL, the ESPaDOnS twin spectropolarimeter,
was just installed.
A complex network of magnetic field lines is emerging from the surface of the baby star SU Aurigae. This image was obtained thanks to the combined effort of NARVAL and ESPaDOnS. Click on the image to animate the star. (© JF Donati, MM Jardine).
