Spreadsheet with TML observations?
Posted 18 July 2013 - 02:01 AM
Bradley Schaefer included a list of TML observations in his paper http://adsabs.harvar...PASP..102..212S to check (with not this huge success) his TML algorithm - does anybody know of the availability of a spreadsheet with these observations?

While it is cumbersome to select and enter the observations manually I will continue with this approach to check my meanwhile developed new approach for calculating the effect of light pollution on resolving faint companions of wide doubles.
PS: The by light pollution increased increment faintness of the secondary dNEML is calculated as
6.93559616693627E-02+4.32571272410334*LOG(((6.5/NEML)^2),2.512)^1.81526832546765*(M2/18)^8.00090419543305. This seems to work quite well for refractors (regression coefficient compared with Schaefers model is 0.992) and in the next step I will have to include the effects of central obstruction
