Abstract

 

Photoelectric measures with filters intended to match the response of the dark-adapted eye show substantial difference from the values on preliminary AAVSO charts. A mean error of 0.61m, and a standard deviation of 0.22m, were measured. These differences to not depend strongly on apparent magnitude or color.
