A series of about forty long-slit spectra of Halley's comet has been secured in the optical wavelength region, using different instruments, at resolution ranging from 0.05 to 1.6 nm. The interval of heliocentric distance r covered by these observations is 1.7 to 0.9 a.u. before perihelion, while r = 0.95 a.u. after perihelion. The main characteristics of the pre-perihelion spectra are described. In particular, some emissions due to the OH[SUP]+[/SUP] (0,1) and CH[SUP]+[/SUP](1,0) bands have been detected for the first time. [less ▲]

Observational techniques and instrumentation applied in ground-based studies of the cometary coma during the post-perihelion phase of the recent passage of Comet Halley are summarized. Applications of a 1.5 m telescope equipped with a coude spectrograph for long slit investigations of spectral intensity distributions, a 1.4 m CAT, coude echelle spectrometer and reticon to evaluate the C-12/C-13 isotopic abundance ratio, and a 50 cm photometric telescope for narrow bandwidth spectroscopy are described. Finally, the 1.5 m Danish telescope, equipped with a CCD camera, collected high spatial resolution photographs of the various coma components when the comet was 0.42 AU from the sun. [less ▲]

The Al to Mg abundance ratio is redetermined in two extreme metal-poor stars, HD 19445 and HD 140283, on the basis of accurate spectral material. It is found that: (1) one of the two lines used for the Al abundance determination is blended by CH lines; (2) no anomalous difference appears between the hotter and the cooler star, both showing an Al overdeficiency; (3) the observations are in fair agreement with predictions from the theory of explosive carbon burning.
