J/A+A/453/349  CCD positions for eight Jovian irregular satellites (Veiga, 2006)

CCD positions for eight Jovian irregular satellites. Veiga C.H. <Astron. Astrophys. 453, 349 (2006)> =2006A&A...453..349V
ADC_Keywords: Solar system ; Planets ; Positional data Keywords: astrometry - celestial mechanics Abstract: The astrometric positions of eight irregular Jovian satellites are given for the oppositions of the planet from 1995 to 1999. These positions were measured on 204 CCD frames obtained at the Cassegrain focus of a 1.6m reflector. They are compared with the theoretically calculated positions from JPL Development Ephemeris. The observed minus-calculated standard deviation for all observations of the eight satellites are σRA=0.071" and σDE=0.052". The USNO-A2.0 (I/252) catalog was used for the astrometric calibration.
