This lab is designed to familiarize students with the technique of photoelectric filter photometry and counting statistics. The software for this exercise puts students in control of a computer-controlled telescope with sidereal tracking. It illustrates the use of equatorial coordinates for finding stars in a cluster and introduces the use of H-R diagrams for analyzing the age and distance of clusters. A student guide supplied with the software describes how to use B and V photometry of cluster members to plot an H-R diagram of the Pleiades and to determine its distance. This is part of a larger collection of simulations, Project CLEA.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 95 of MS-Windows.
