Description: The QUBES
was a very high dispersion spectrograph for bright objects. QUBES was
available as a common user instrument although it was the property of the
Department of Pure and Applied Physics at Queen´s University Belfast.
Abundances in stellar associations, kinematics and abundances in the
interstellar medium, absorption line profiles in OB stars, and properties of
planetary nebulae are amongst the studies carried out on this instrument.
