Conference paper


Stellar occultations are usually observed visually, but this can also be done photographically. Our method has some advantages:
  • the obtained moments of contacts refer to the smoothed lunar limb

  • the error in the determination of contacts is calculable

  • the error may be less than in visual work

  • the reduction of photographs is fast, due to the application of an “on-line” computer [1].
