Astronomical Photometry, a Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Small and large telescopes are being installed all around the world. Astronomers have thus acquired better access to more modern equipment; not in the least to photometers, which are very important tools for the contemporary observer. This development of higher quality and more sensitive equipment makes it very necessary to improve the accuracy of the measurements. This guide helps the astronomer and astronomy student to improve the quality of their photometric measurements and to extract a maximum of information from their observations. The book is based on the authors' observing experience, spending numerious nights behind various instruments at many different observatories.

Book News Annotation:

Two Belgian astronomers draw on their many nights behind a wide variety of telescopes at observatories around the world to present a guide to improving the quality of photometric measurements with the new equipment that is becoming available to astronomers and astronomy students, and to extracting a maximum of information from the observations. Defines the operant model of light; surveys the principles of telescopes, observation, measurement, classification, and other aspects; and delves into specific topics such as atmospheric and interstellar extinction, filters, color transformation, data analysis, homogenization, and photography.
