Occultation of a 12m4 star UCAC4 410-143659 by Triton
on the 5th/6th of Oct 2017 around 23h52 UTC
Observation protocol and how to report
For the upcoming Triton occultation we got from Diana Berard of the LuckyStar project a protocol, how to set up and do the measurement. And also a reporting form, which will facilitate the data collection and further analysis.
The main points in the protocol file how to carry out your observations are as follows:
1) Predictions and websites with informations
2) Time of observation
3) Exposure time considerations
4) Field of view
5) Calibrations images : VERY IMPORTANT
6) For Raptor Merlin and Watec users
7) Time synchronization
Here you can find the protocol as a pdf file!
For reporting your observation, Diane has written a template for an observation report. You can get it as a docx file
or as an odt file
Please fill it out after your (hopefully successful) observations and return it
Here again the last prediction!
