uploading a datafile with fainter-than observations

Hello Everyone,


I've done time-series photometry on two polars with very high amplitudes of variability over the course of their orbital periods. When at minimum, these objects are undetectable with my equipment, so I can only report fainter-than observations for parts of their light curves. Is it possible to submit fainter-than observations in a datafile? I've got several hundred of these fainter-than measurements interspersed in my light curves, so uploading them one-by-one would be a huge chore.

 

Best Regards,

Colin

Submitting fainter-thans in a file is simple: just put a < in front of the magnitude.

For future reference, this page gives a complete overview of all the options for uploading files in Extended format.

Thanks!

Hi Will,


Thanks! I just realized that my problem was that I had used a > instead of a <. I appreciate your help.

Best Regards,

Colin
