Abstract

The passbands of the Washington system (C, M, T1, T2) have been checked through synthetic photometry of the Vilnius spectra and comparison of observed and synthetic color-color relations. Using the derived passbands, theoretical colors were computed using the grid of ATLAS no-overshoot models of Castelli. These can be used for calibration of the Washington system.
