Comments about "Relativistic Doppler effect" in Wikipedia

This document contains comments about the article Relativistic Doppler effect in Wikipedia
In the last paragraph I explain my own opinion.




The article starts with the following sentence.
The relativistic Doppler effect is different from the non-relativistic Doppler effect as the equations include the time dilation effect of special relativity and do not involve the medium of propagation as a reference point
The whole issue is to what extend a certain physical issue shows the Doppler effect or the relativistic Doppler effect.
Astronomers know of three sources of redshift/blueshift: #1 Doppler shifts; #2 gravitational redshifts (due to light exiting a gravitational field); and #3 cosmological expansion (where space itself stretches). This article concerns itself only with #1 Doppler shifts
