Great Photometry

Looked at the data from 17 March 2014 UTC today and found it to be very clean.  Io and Ganymede were making a close approach to one another, so their light is combined in the plot below:

Figure 1: Photometry for 17 March 2014 UTC

In any case, this data looks really nice and I'm happy with the data collection and calibration process.  This data is now what I'd call "fully calibrated" in that the final "reduction" is now complete with respect to atmospheric extinction.  X-axis is the UTC time, and the y-axis is the brightness, in ADU (corrected such that this would be the brightness at the top of the atmosphere).
