J/A+A/540/A132   Optical follow-up of Q0957+561 in 2005-2010  (Shalyapin+, 2012)

A 5.5-year robotic optical monitoring of Q0957+561: substructure in a non-local cD galaxy. Shalyapin V.N., Goicoechea L.J., Gil-Merino R. <Astron. Astrophys. 540, A132 (2012)> =2012A&A...540A.132S
ADC_Keywords: QSOs ; Gravitational lensing ; Photometry, SDSS Keywords: gravitational lensing: strong - quasars: individual: Q0957+561 - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - black hole physics Description: The optical variability database of the two images (A and B) of the gravitationally lensed quasar Q0957+561 is based on frames taken with the Liverpool Robotic Telescope in the 2005-2010 period, as part of the Liverpool Quasar Lens Monitoring (LQLM) project (Goicoechea et al. 2010AdAst2010E..29G). A crowded-field photometry pipeline produced instrumental fluxes of both quasar images, and only frames with signal-to-noise ratio above 80 over Q0957+561A were passed through a transformation pipeline. This pipeline transformed instrumental magnitudes into SDSS magnitudes (the calibration-correction scheme is described in Appendix A of Shalyapin et al. (2008A&A...492..401S) and the main text of the paper). We also turned SDSS magnitudes into physical fluxes using suitable conversion equations (SDSS Photometric Flux Calibration 2007, Table 1 contains g-band fluxes for 357 different nights, while Table 2 includes r-band fluxes for 371 observation nights.
