Photometry, from Greek photo-("light") and -metry ("measure"), is a technique used in astronomy that is concerned with measuring the flux or intensity of light radiated by astronomical objects.

This light is measured through a telescope using a photometer, often made using electronic devices such as a CCD photometer or a photoelectric photometer that converts light into an electric current by.

- Astronomical observations can in principle be reduced to a few fundamental types of measurement, and of. He made major advances in narrow-band photoelectric photometry, developing a four-color system now known as the Strömgren photometric system, and explained the envelope of ionized hydrogen, now called a Strömgren sphere, that surrounds certain kinds of young star.

Young (, ) presented the first detailed study of temperature effects in photomultipliers under conditions applicable to astronomical. Other articles where Photoelectric photometry is discussed: photometry: use of the more accurate photoelectric, rather than photographic, detectors.

The faintest stars observed with photoelectric tubes had magnitudes of about In photoelectric photometry, the image of a single star is passed through a small diaphragm in the focal plane of the telescope.

Observational astronomy is a division of astronomy that is concerned with recording data about the observable universe, in contrast with theoretical astronomy, which is mainly concerned with calculating the measurable implications of physical is the practice and study of observing celestial objects with the use of telescopes and other astronomical instruments.

The observations were obtained using the two head photometer described by Piccioni et al. (, Acta Astron. 29,), mounted on the m telescope of the Bologna Observatory. The UBV Photoelectric Photometry Catalogue, or UBV M, is the star brightness catalogue that complies to the UBV photometric system developed by astronomer Harold Johnson.

This chapter discusses astronomical photometry and other recent applications of the image orthicon. Astronomical photometry has traditionally been done photographically or photoelectrically. Work, carried out at the Corralitos Observatory, has demonstrated that the image orthicon is capable of yielding acceptable results in astronomical photometry.

This permits photometry of fainter stars with the electronic camera than with a photoelectric photometer on the same telescope. A comparison of the results of electronographic photometry of the cluster NGC with conventional photoelectric and photographic measures by Kinman7 has been described by The data show that, for a min exposure a.
