-- AaronAndrews - 25 Oct 2016

To do by Friday:

  • Anisha:
    • Fit sqrt(sigma0^2 + lambda*t) to the fitted standard deviation as a function of exposure time plot
  • Aaron:
    • Simulate background.
    • Generate stars in fiducial volume around frame.
Line: 14 to 15
* Histogram of a dark frame 0.1s exposure:

  • The fitted mean and fitted sigma as a function of exposure time:

  • The mean as a function of exposure time is linearly fitted with nu_0 + mu*t
  • Parameters obtained:
  • Nu0: 917.858645977
  • Mu: 0.0759400473796
  • The sigma as a function of exposure time is fitted with sqrt(sigma0^2 + lambda*t)
  • Parameters obtained:
  • Lambda: 0.0364088264173
  • Sigma0: 6.44315650804
