SIMPLER DSLR processing and photometry for epsilon Aurigae

A previously published procedure for processing DSLR images with IRIS was somehow complicated. Though it may be more accurate since all the necessary steps for processing images are given, the procedure presented here seems to give the same results without making so much trouble! Since we have a bright target and small total exposure times […]

DSLR processing and photometry for epsilon Aurigae with IRIS

Prepared for the CitizenSky.org ‘s DSLR tutorials (with the help of bikeman and Roger_Pieri). CitizenSky.org is dedicated to the eclipsing binary epsilon Aurigae, but the procedure is more general and can be applied to any star. ~ ~ ~ For easiest use download the last version of IRIS 5.58 (especially for any Linux user because […]
