Annual intensive observational astronomy course using the Nordic Optical Telescope at La Palma has been taking place this week. FINCA post docs are both lecturing and tutoring student groups during this course. Our postdoctoral fellow Marco Berton was giving lectures about optical spectroscopy and tutoring the students in optical observations, while our new post doctoral fellow will be helping the students with the infrared observations. This year we have special guests from University of Namibia, the students are participating on the course remotely. Academy Fellow Elina Lindfors was tutoring the group in Namibia on preparing for observations. In the future we hope to intensify the collaboration with University of Namibia even further.
