Information on Service 'BGDS light curves form service'

[Use this service from your browser]

Further access options are discussed below

From the Bochum Galactic Disk Survey, time series have been obtained in the r and i bands on an (up to) nightly basis. Depending on the field, the time series contain up to more than 300 nights over more than 7 years. Each measurement represents the averaged flux over 10 minutes of observation (from 9 averaged 10s images).

The Bochum Galactic Disk Survey is an ongoing project to monitor the stellar content of the Galactic disk in a 6 degree wide stripe centered on the Galactic plane. The data has been recorded since mid-2010 in Sloan r and i simultaneously with the Robotic Bochum Twin Telescope (RoBoTT) at the Universitaetssternwarte Bochum near Cerro Armazones in the Chilean Atacama desert. It contains measurements of about 2x10^7 stars over more than seven years. Additionally, intermittent measurements in Johnson UVB and Sloan z have been recorded as well.

Overview

You can access this service using:

This service is not published. This can mean that it was deemed too unimportant, for internal use only, or is just a helper for a published service. Equally likely, however, it is under development, abandoned in development or otherwise unfinished. Exercise caution.

Input Fields

The following fields are available to provide input to the service (with some renderers, some of these fields may be unavailable):

NameTable Head DescriptionUnitUCD
amp Amplitude Difference between brightest and weakest observation. mag arith.diff;phot.mag

mean_mag 〈mag〉 Mean magnitude in band given in phot_band. mag phot.mag;stat.mean
ssa_bandpass Bandpass Bandpass (i.e., rough spectral location) of this dataset; this should be the most appropriate term from the values of VODataService vs:Waveband. N/A instr.bandpass
ssa_location Location ICRS location of aperture center deg pos.eq

Default Output Fields

The following fields are contained in the output by default. More fields may be available for selection; these would be given below in the VOTable output fields.

VOTable Output Fields

The following fields are available in VOTable output. The verbosity level is a number intended to represent the relative importance of the field on a scale of 1 to 30. The services take a VERB argument. A field is included in the output if their verbosity level is less or equal VERB*10.
