  • Use Python to analyse these dark frames via Histogram plots and plots of column mean and standerd deviation, to determine if the pixels follow a Poisson distribution.
  • To compare my results regarding dark frames with Chris Haynes and Ryan Cheale's results.

Aims

  • To observe a number of variable stars over the course of multiple weeks.
  • To use the programming language Python to analyse the magnitude of these stars as a function of time
  • To determine both the variable period and variation in magnitude of these stars
  • Prior to this, take dark frames as detailed in Data and Logs dark study
  • Use Python to analyse these dark frames via Histogram plots and plots of column mean and standerd deviation, to determine if the pixels follow a Poisson distribution.
  • To compare my results regarding dark frames with Chris Haynes and Ryan Cheale's results.

  • Gamma Cassiopeia - Variable Star (Gamma Cassiopeia Variable), magnitude variation 1.5 - 3.0, period 0.7 days
  • Delta Cephei - Variable Star (Cephid Variable), magnitude variation 3.5 - 4.4, period 5.4 days
