Re: A Question About Mark III Data
Hmmm. I just looked at a bunch of the correction terms for the Mark III
files I processed. The correction adjustments are certainly not a simple
linear function. In most cases they are somewhat quadratic with the center
stars needing darkening and the stars at the beginning and end of the line
But in almost every case the correction term at the end of the line
brightened the stars much more than than those at the beginning of the line.
In fact a case could be made that there was an average loss of about 0.1
magnitudes from the beginning of the line to the end.
