23 Partial Mag Drops Only – Asteroid Brighter than Mag 13

24 (774) Armor Occults TYC On 8 Aug 2013 Predicted Drop (1.28 m ) Observed Drop (0.69 m )

25 (1) Ceres Occults TYC On 04 Jun 2012

26 Conclusions Camera instrumental magnitudes can be very different than predicted V and R magnitudes To match camera measured magnitudes to V or R calibration is required Transformation colour coefficients can be determined experimentally for your camera and used to convert standard magnitudes to instrumental magnitudes and vice versa
