Vilnius Photometry in the Southern Hemisphere

  • R.J. Dodd (a1), M.C. Forbes (a2) and D.J. Sullivan (a2)

Abstract

The seven intermediate passband filters of the Vilnius photometric system enable a more comprehensive and discriminating classification of stellar objects than is possible in broadband systems. To date, a lack of suitable standard stars has inhibited its use in the Southern Hemisphere. We have an established programme for extending the network of northern Vilnius standards into the southern skies. This paper briefly summarizes the characteristics of the Vilnius system, provides a synopsis of the data obtained on over 200 standard stars so far and presents preliminary CM and CC diagrams for the open cluster Omicron Velorum (IC2391).
