  It has been developed to limit the photometric noise and runs fully automatically, with only a few interactive steps. We compare the theoretical description of noise and problems in high-precision photometry with CCD time-series observations in a non-crowded test field observed with the Danish m at ESO La Silla, Chile in Cited by: Photometric Accuracy/Precision – A Perspective. Frankly there is no truth out there, in a manner of speaking. In other words there is probably not any such thing as a % absolutely accurate photometric measurement. Photometric Precision is an illusion (that is not to say that the observing and measurement techniques cannot be precise). Paper: Photometry at the Robotic Lunar Observatory in Flagstaff: Volume: , CCD Precision Photometry Workshop Page: Authors: Anderson, J. M. Abstract. Results of tests to demonstrate the very high differential-photometric stability of CCD light sensors are presented. The measurements reported here demonstrate that in a controlled laboratory environment, a front-illuminated CCD can provide differential-photometric measurements with reproducible precision approaching one part in 10(exp 5).

  We present techniques for wide‐field ultrahigh‐precision time‐sampled CCD photometry. Representing a survey of field stars, our data consist of UBVRI photometry and a V‐band time series of exposures on 5 consecutive nights cover stars in a ~1 deg 2 field. The resulting light curves reach precisions of mag per exposure in the brightest stars . ods" that I teach each spring at the University of Oklahoma (OU). The book is intended as an introduction for the college astrophysics major to photometry in the optical region of the spectrum of astronomical objects using CCD imaging from groundbased telescopes. Of . differential photometry using a mm telescope and CCD camera with an average precision of about magnitudes, while on poor nights this drops to magnitudes. These results span a magnitude range from to With a 35mm camera lens and CCD, the average precision is magnitudes at magnitude 7. Precision better than We consider how the signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) of a CCD measurement may be improved and look at the problems associated with undersampling of point spread functions, nonlinearities in the CCD response, flat-field issues, intra-pixel quantum .

This book will bring together experts in the field of astronomical photometry to discuss how their subfields provide the precision and accuracy in astronomical energy flux measurements that are needed to permit tests of astrophysical theories.
