Re: tass star 240.0543 +9.3849
This was my target last night, since the last one I tried was a little too
dim. This one, on the other hand, was almost too bright. I should have
switched instruments and taken "V" data, but I didn't. Next time.
Anyway, here is what I got:
I got another hour of data but the thing got so bright that I have to
assume my anti-blooming gate kicked in, as I started to go over 1/2 of the
Clearly this is variable.
Question about my data. This has the best S/N I can get while staying
below 1/2 of my full-well. The S/N is about 160 or so. The integrations
were only 7 seconds, so the time resolution is probably too tight. The
seeing was pretty crappy. The skies were clear but it was windy and the
stars were twinkling like crazy. Do you think the large degree of scatter
is due to the bad seeing? It seems with a S/N like I described, I should
have less scatter than this.
