EXOSAT spectrum of Capella
Image credit: ESA
The spectrum of the hot corona around the late-type star Capella, obtained
with the 500 l/mm transmission grating (TGS) shows numerous emission lines
of highly ionized atoms. The spectrum is well described by the summed
emission from an optically thin 3 million degree (blue) and and 18 million
degree (red) plasma.
