  1. We had the x and y coordinates of all the pixels of each star.
  2. We summed all x and all y for each star and then divided the sums by the amount of x and y coordinates we had.
  3. This we used as our centers.

Better background determination

  • Split each image into 4 quadrants such that:

Improvements

  • Following on from last weeks meeting, it was suggested the colourmaps used were not overly clear.
  • A version with better contrast has been chosen, and an example is seen below, with the old version, for comparison purposes.
Changed:

  • Next the issue of over anti-aliased pixels in imshow was addressed.
  • Using the interpolation = 'nearest' option, future imshow images should display proper pixels, as seen below.

Accounting for Dark Frames

  • In order to accurately analyse the stars, the background caused by the camera needs to be removed.

New algorithm for finding stars

  • Used algorithm as showed here.
  • We impleted some arbitrary threshold.
  • We set signal to 1 and background to 0.
  • We impleted the algorithm and unfortunately it has a similar problem to the previous algorithm.

  • It thinks that points not touching diagonally are stars.
  • At the threshold of 1000 photoelectrons we have the following:

found_stars_1000_pe.png

  • We implented a crude to find the centers of each star. We only need it as an initial parameter that we will feed to our Gaussian to estimate a much better center position.
  • We found the centers in the following way:
  1. We had the x and y coordinates of all the pixels of each star.
  2. We summed all x and all y for each star and then divided the sums by the amount of x and y coordinates we had.
  3. This we used as our centers.
