    Deep galaxy counts and clustering and their interpretation in light of current theories of galaxy evolution and cosmology. I am chair of the Data Reduction and Verification Group (DRAVG) for the Pan-STARRS project. I am also part of the VST Atlas Survey team, and the DESI Imaging Validation working group. Research Groups. Astronomy and Astrophysics. Observations of two slow-to-fade super-luminous supernovae are reported; both show relatively fast rise times and blue colours, which are incompatible with pair-instability models.

    The L. Davis Press. Oxford Place. Schenectady, N. Y. The L. Davis Press was incorporated in New York State on Novem The first book published by the press contained the proceedings of a one day meeting of the Astronomical Society of New York, held at Colgate University on the subject, "X-Ray Symposium ". Astronomical photometry is the science of measuring the brightness and colours of stars and other celestial objects. It is a technique at the very heart of modern astrophysics. This authoritative volume traces the fascinating historical development of astronomical photometry - from visual techniques at the time of William Herschel in the s, through to the birth of photometry with charge 4/5(1).

Mark VoitCited by: Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume ) Abstract We attempt to demonstrate why this should be the case, and then describe how well it has been done through a review of the application of differential techniques from the earliest visual methods to photoelectric and CCD photometry.

Photometry, from Greek photo-("light") and -metry ("measure"), is a technique used in astronomy that is concerned with measuring the flux or intensity of light radiated by astronomical objects.

This light is measured through a telescope using a photometer, often made using electronic devices such as a CCD photometer or a photoelectric photometer that converts light into an electric current by. We have used a CCD to obtain stellar UBV magnitudes to V = 18 towards eight distant, young stellar groups in the third Galactic quadrant where interstellar extinction is low (l = deg deg).

Comparison with theoretical isochrones yields ages and distances of significantly improved precision compared to previous studies based on photoelectric diaphragm photometry.

Astrometry from space was performed for the first time and with great success by the ESA Hipparcos satellite (). This mission was designed as an as­ trometry mission, but the use of a photon counting detector made it possible to produce very important photometric results: the most accurate astronomical pho­ tometry ever by the main Hipparcos mission in a very broad band of Unveiling the stellar halo distribution with multi-wavelength photometry Event Date: Monday, Novem pm - pm.

We present the discovery and subarcsecond localization of a new Fast Radio Burst with the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array and realfast search system. The FRB was discovered on June 14 with a dispersion measure of pc/cm3. This is the highest DM of any localized FRB and its measured burst fluence of Jy ms is less than nearly all other FRBs.

The source is not detected to. This book brings together experts in the field of astronomical photometry to discuss how their subfields provide the precision and accuracy in astronomical energy flux measurements that are needed to permit tests of astrophysical theories.
