The Locus Algorithm I: A technique for identifying optimised pointings for differential photometry

11 Mar 2020 Creaner Oisín Nolan Kevin Hickey Eugene Smith Niall

Studies of the photometric variability of astronomical sources from ground-based telescopes must overcome atmospheric extinction effects. Differential photometry by reference to an ensemble of reference stars which closely match the target in terms of magnitude and colour can mitigate these effects... (read more)
