J/A+A/487/755       CCD observations of Martian Satellites    (Veiga+, 2008)

Phobos and Deimos CCD observations. Veiga C.H. <Astron. Astrophys. 487, 755 (2008)> =2008A&A...487..755V
ADC_Keywords: Planets Keywords: celestial mechanics - astrometry - ephemerides Abstract: This paper give positions of Martian satellites system from CCD observations obtained at the Cassegrain focus of a 1.6m reflector for the years 1995 and 2003. Description: These positions were reduced using the scale and orientation parameters, determined from star field positions of Uranus and Pluto systems' observations that were made in the same night as Mars observations.
