Method for Determining Atmospheric Extinction

  • A. P. Sarychev


The compilation of a fundamental catalogue of star magnitudes with the aid of a modern photoelectric photometer requires careful determination of light absorption in the atmosphere. The anticipated error of photoelectric measurement of brightness is O005. Such high accuracy compels one to take into account the variation in transmittance throughout the night.
