Roberto Piazzesi, INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma SHARK-VIS final integration report DOI: https://doi.org/10.36116/VIDEOMEM_1.2022.1 The SHARK-VIS high-contrast visible imager has completed its laboratory integration phase and is ready for installation at LBT. After completion of the PAE (Preliminary Acceptance in Europe), SHARK-VIS will perform a run as visiting instrument at the AEOS telescope in Hawai’i to test performance, speed up commissioning, and verify reduction pipelines before moving to LBT. We present here results of the performance tests on the ADONI testbench and…

RR Lyrae and Cepheids IV : Large-scale surveys as bridges between spectroscopy and photometry

La Palma, Sept 26-30, 2022 (programme) Volume 2 2022 Session 1a: Stellar models and HRD Marconi Marcella, INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte Stellar pulsation models DOI: https://doi.org/10.36116/VIDEOMEM_2.2022.1 Classical pulsating stars are important distance indicators and stellar population tracers. On this basis a comprehensive investigation of their properties based on both an observational and a theoretical approach is crucial. The most important theoretical tools and results obtained for both classical Cepheids and RR Lyrae are outlined and their reliability is tested against…
