New broadband UBVRI photoelectric observations on the Johnson-Kron-Cousins photometric system have been made of 202 stars around the sky, and centered at the celestial equator. These stars constitute both an update of and additions to a previously published list of equatorial photometric standard stars. The list is capable of providing, for both celestial hemispheres, an internally consistent homogeneous broadband standard photometric system around the sky. When these new measurements are… 
FAINT UBVRI STANDARD STAR FIELDS AT +50° DECLINATION
Precise and accurate CCD-based UBVRI photometry is presented for ~2000 stars distributed around the sky in a declination zone centered approximately at +50°. Their photometry has been calibrated to
FAINT UBVRI STANDARD STAR FIELDS
High-quality CCD-based UBVRI photometry is presented for ∼45, 000 stars distributed among 60 different fields centered on the celestial equator and at δ ≈ –50°. This photometry has been calibrated to
Limiting magnitudes and night sky brightness at the Langkawi National Observatory based on observations of standard stars
We present the estimation of limiting magnitudes and night sky brightness at the Langkawi National Observatory with observations of selected standard stars. We first derived the transformation
Transformations from WISE to 2MASS, SDSS and BVI Photometric Systems: II. Transformation Equations for Red-Clump Stars
Abstract We present colour transformations for the conversion of Wide-Field Survey Explorer W1, W2, and W3 magnitudes to the Johnson–Cousins BVIc, Sloan Digital Sky Survey gri, and Two Micron All Sky
The Stability of BVRI Comparison Stars Near Selected TeV Blazars
We have measured Johnson BV and Cousins RI magnitudes for comparison stars near 5 TeV blazars. We compare our values with published values, spanning 25 years in some cases, to identify those stars
An optical-UV survey of the North Celestial Cap
We present preliminary results of an optical-UV survey of the North Celestial Cap (NCCS) based on ∼5% areal coverage. The NCCS will provide good photometric and astrometric data for the North
Physical Parameters of the Eclipsing System V2647 Cyg
The first high-accuracy CCD UBV RI (RI)C light curves of the recently discovered eclipsing binary V2647 Cyg = GSC 3612 1565 ( Open image in new window ) have been obtained. The photometric light
Calibration of the MEarth Photometric System: Optical Magnitudes and Photometric Metallicity Estimates for 1802 Nearby M-dwarfs
The MEarth Project is a photometric survey systematically searching the smallest stars nearest to the Sun for transiting rocky planets. Since 2008, MEarth has taken approximately two million images
CCD UBVRI photometry of NGC 6811
We present the results of CCD UBVRI observations of the open cluster NGC 6811 obtained on 18th July 2012 with the 1 m telescope at the TÜBİTAK National Observatory (TUG). Using these photometric
The Gaia spectrophotometric standard stars survey – IV. Results of the absolute photometry campaign
We present Johnson-Kron-Cousins BVRI photometry of 228 candidate spectrophotometric standard stars for the external (absolute) flux calibration of Gaia data. The data were gathered as part of a
