Wiki for Lowell LARI-BGBF

What is this all about? A description of the research that you are supporting, which involves measuring bolometric flux through fitting of spectral energy distributions.

  1. How do I get started?
  2. Collecting photometry
  3. Cleaning up a photometry file
  4. Try a fit
  5. Try a more advanced fit with reddening.
