Abstract

The importance of determining the error of the flat field in CCD photometry is detailed and our methods of doing this are described. We now have reached a precision of 1-1.5 % in our photometry. Color-magnitude diagrams of the open cluster M67 (ours and Laugalys et al. 2003) are compared.

Keywords: methods; observational techniques; photometric CCD photometry; flat field errors clusters; individual; M67
