Aaron - Image offset parameter investigation: Offset_Parameters.pdf


  • Needed to determine accurate offsets (position and rotation transform) of images.
  • Matched ~30 brightest stars for each image in the Dragonfly cluster (blue filter), comparing to first image in set.
  • Constructed chi-square to compare measured positions in one image to transformed measured positions in offset image.
  • Performed modified least squares fit.
Scaled Errors
  • Error on magnitudes now involves scaling parameters

  • CodeCogsEqn_5.gif
  • where m is the initial magnitude before scaling, c is the intercept in the linear fit (from last meeting) and g is the gradient of the linear fit
  • Laura - m_scaled.pdf

  • Double Cluster HR of a single frame:

  • 96 stars, maximum mag = 13.623

  • Double Cluster HR of a stacked frame:
  • 85 stars, maximum magnitude = 13.300
  • Lower star count in stacked frames possibly due to the stacking of read-out noise in each frame
  • Dragonfly Cluster HR using scaling parameters from the Double Cluster
  • Dragonfly Cluster HR using dragonfly scaling parameters
