The Monitor project: data processing and light curve production

Abstract:

We have begun a large-scale photometric survey of nearby open clusters and star-forming regions, the Monitor project, aiming to measure time-series photometry for > 10000 cluster members over > 10 deg2 of sky, to find low-mass eclipsing binary and planet systems. We describe the software pipeline we have developed for this project, showing that we can achieve peak rms accuracy over the entire data set of better than ∼2 mmag using aperture photometry, with rms < 1 per cent over ∼4 mag...
