Echelle spectra of 10 bright asteroids are presented and compared against an observed twilight spectrum and a computed Solar spectrum. Spectra covering a 2130 Å spectral range centered on λ = 5785 Å are of high resolving power and high signal to noise ratio. So we focus on a comparison of detailed properties of spectral lines and not on albedo variations… CONTINUE READING
