J/A+A/383/724    1999-2000 CCD observations of inner Jovian moons (Kulyk+, 2002)

Astrometric CCD observations of the inner Jovian satellites in 1999-2000 Kulyk I., Jockers K., Karpov N., Sergeev A. <Astron. Astrophys. 383, 724 (2002)> =2002A&A...383..724K
ADC_Keywords: Planets ; Positional data Keywords: planets and satellites: individual: Jovian inner satellites - astrometry Description: The file innerjov.dat contains 236 intersatellite positions of the inner Jovian moons Thebe, Amalthea, Adrastea and Metis derived from the observations made with the 2-m Zeiss RCC telescope of Terskol Observatory (Terskol peak, Northern Caucasus, long=42.50083°, lat=43.27427°, h=3100m) in October-November 1999 and in November 2000. The Two-Channel Focal Reducer of the Max-Planck Institute for Aeronomy (MPAe,Germany) was used for acquisition of the images. We provide δ(α) and δ(δ) of Thebe and Amalthea with respect to the Galilean satellites, while the positions of Adrastea and Metis are referred to either the Galilean moons or to Thebe or Amalthea. Astrometric topocentric coordinates J2000.0 of the Galilean satellites were used for scale and orientation angle determination. The array scale was corrected for differential refraction and differential aberration to first-order. File Summary:
