photometricity, outliers

Oddly, I am responsible for photometricity monitoring on the photoop team. Today I fixed bugs in ancient 10-micron cloud-camera analysis software (in the ircam subdirectory of the photoop repository at Princeton), and started it running on all the cloud-camera data ever taken at Apache Point Observatory in preparation for the next round of SDSS data processing at Princeton.

I also wasted more time thinking about outlier rejection, and implemented a Markov Chain Monte-Carlo method. D'oh!

  1. That Apache Point Observatory is way up there! We had to put chains on our Monte Carlo too for those last few miles.
