The student may find it useful to re-read the work of Schatzman 1], Dufay 2] and Aller ] before embarking upon the study of this 'Introduction to astronomical photometry'.

It is not our aim in this book to deal with every aspect of stellar photometry. On the contrary, we shall restriet ourselves to looking at subjects ofwhich knowledge seems.

Astronomical photometry book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers/5. A handbook of astronomical photometry is presented in a format amenable to both professional and amateur use. The fundamental equipment, procedures, theory, and applications of photometry are described.

Photometric systems such as the UBV, M-K, and Stromgren classification methods are explained, together with statistical treatments of photometric data. The Observatory, 'This book usefully fills a gap between a simple popularist approach to photometry and a full-scale research monograph, and is a perfect starting-point for more advanced levels.'Europe & Astronomy, Budding s book is a particularly good introduction to the art and science of photometry The presentation is very good throughout.

Highly illustrated, this book provides an overview and historical background of the subject before reviewing the main themes within astronomical photometry. The central chapters focus on the practical design of the instruments and methodology : $ Photometry, from Greek photo-("light") and -metry ("measure"), is a technique used in astronomy that is concerned with measuring the flux or intensity of light radiated by astronomical objects.

This light is measured through a telescope using a photometer, often made using electronic devices such as a CCD photometer or a photoelectric photometer that converts light into an electric current by. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Henden, Arne A.
