The Hipparcos and Tycho Photometric System Passbands

Bessell, Michael


Hipparcos and Tycho magnitudes have been extracted for many of the E-region standard stars. Differences between B, V, and the Hipparcos and Tycho magnitudes have been derived and regressed against color. Fiducial lines and polynomial fits have been derived and compared with values in the Hipparcos and Tycho Catalogues. Synthetic photometry has been made using the Vilnius spectra and compared with the observations. As a result, it has been necessary to modify some of the published bandpasses.
