[76.05] Expanding the Standard Star Library Using CCD Photometry

J. J. Albretsen, M. D. Joner, B. J. Taylor (Brigham Young University)

Taylor and Joner (1996) showed consistency between PM photometry standard fields observered by Landolt (1983,1992), Graham (1983), and Cousins (1974). CCD data from subsections of standard equatorial fields using VRI filters were secured by Joner from 1993 to 1995 at CTIO. Six fields, SA98, SA102, SA106, SA110, SA114, and an asterism in M67 are being analyzed using aperture phtometry techniques. The ultimate goal is to expand the number of standard stars in the current standard fields to include fainter stars. Results of this analysis will be presented.
