CCD Photometry: Some Basic Concerns

  • C. Sterken (a1)

Abstract

We review the status of CCD photometry with emphasis on applications in projects that require considerable amounts of observing time at medium-aperture telescopes and at tasks complementing projects carried out at large telescopes. Associated problems of CCDs are discussed, together with unsuspected difficulties affecting millimagnitude accuracy mainly caused by pixel-size mismatch, cooling, data acquisition, non-linearity of response and improper standardization.
