Upset? Are you kidding me? This is great fun for me.
You seem to have a knack for telling at a glance whether something is real
or more likely an anomaly. You have learned that through vast experience.
I'm learning that, too, I'm just way behind you.
After playing with larger apertures I think that there is very little
chance that this is actual flicker. With larger apertures (which the field
can tolerate), both C and K start acting really weird. I have no idea why
C and K look rational and V irrational at smaller apertures, nor do I have
any idea why I have such crappy data during that period. I think it has
more to do with my wiggle in RA than dust or flat-fielding. So much to
learn, so few clear nights.
In regards to error bars, what other options do I have for computing
errors? Taking the standard deviation of K-C I understand. Do you y'all
have other ideas how I can quantify my errors?
