A Method for Correcting for Tilt Errors in a Plumb-Line Deviation Astrometer
An improved method for measuring the deviation from the normal to the geoid using a digital telescope is presented. The algorithm for the traditional method is described together with the algorithms and performance characteristics of the proposed method. This paper is based on a presentation made at the conference “Modern Astrometry 2017,” dedicated to the memory of K.V. Kuimov (Sternberg Astronomical Institute, Moscow State University, October 23–25, 2017).
