KIC 8462852 (Boyajian's Star) spectroscopic follow up

APO/ARCES spectrum of Tabetha Boyajian's Star (KIC 8462852)

Brett Morris and Jim Davenport

The notebook kic8462852.ipynb contains code for retrieving my APO ARC 3.5 m/ARCES (R~31,500) spectrum of Boyajian's Star (KIC 8462852) at 2017-05-20 10:34 UTC. It downloads the wavelength-calibrated spectra from my webpage and caches them locally, then normalizes the continuum using the spectroscopic standard BD +28 4211, and shifts the wavelengths to the star's rest frame. The telluric standard star HR 7916 (spectral type F2Vn) is also included.

If you make use of this spectrum in your research, please contact Brett Morris about attribution.
