Is there anyone out there who occasionally (or routinely) reports tricolour G magnitudes to the VSS? I’d like to hear from you whether the community regards the data as useful.
I have been submitting my observations of HS 0229+8016 via webobs to the AAVSO to see how my TG determinations relate to Johnson V mags reported by others – and they look OK so far.
I’ve been doing ensemble photometric solutions (Vmags of reference stars), as there are so few APASS gold-standard brightness determinations near to the variable in this case. I am including a check star brightness with each report. I figure 2dp is quite sufficient, as the error does not justify a 3dp precision.
