Averaging Error from several reports

Making several images with several telescopes results in stacks of images per telescope used for photometry.

Result is then a multitude of reports with mags and corresponding error indication.

Is there a standard procedure for consolidating such reports?

Averaging the mags is certainly easy - but how to handle the error values statistically correct is somewhat unclear to me. Any suggestions?
