A Demonstration Analysis Script for Performing Aperture Photometry

by Brad Whitmore and Inge Heyer


A demonstration IRAF/STSDAS script to perform aperture photometry on WFPC2 images of Omega-Cen has been developed and is described in this document. The primary goal is to provide an easy-to-use example that can help introduce observers to the use of scripts, and to demonstrate a few of the commonly used IRAF/STSDAS capabilities. Two sections of auxiliary information are included. One section provides information on how to down load the script and notes on running the script. The other section provides a list of other commonly used IRAF and STSDAS tasks for working with WFPC2 data, along with other useful information.
