Added error bars to the Histogram


Error bars are small


We plotted the new hypothesis mean = mean0 + mu*t , however since our data was all over the place we used the last years dark frames that were at a constant temp 5 degrees which is much better that the -15 degrees. below is the graph of both those tempratures

This is -5 degrees


This is -15 degrees


The same thing was done with the new sigma fit sigma = sqrt(mu*t + simga_0)

temp 5 degrees


temp -15 degree


When the range was default over all data, histograms were plotted like this (see below), and the range and number of bins had to be input for each individual image. Autorange.png

When we automated the range choice, we received this comb effect


which caused our fit to skew downwards due to the zeros in some of the bins. We found that this was due to the histogram data being integers and the bin width being <1. Therefore, there wasn't an integer value in every bin. This was accounted for by making an automatic number of bins.
