[10.11] Expanding The Standard Star Library Using CCD Photometry

J. J. Albretsen, M. D Joner (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 V(RI)c filters were secured by Joner from 1993 to 1998 at CTIO. Six fields, SA98, SA102, SA106, SA110, SA114, and an asterism in M67 will be analyzed using several methods including point spread function, maximum entropy, and aperture photometry techniques. The ultimate goal is to expand the number of standard stars in the current standard fields to include fainter stars. Preliminary results of this analysis will be presented from the aperture photometry reductions.
