On the quality of WET time.


Abstract (from CDS):

The goal of the WET collaboration is to produce a photometric light curve as continuous and accurate as possible, given the weather and technical constraints. In order to join light curves from different observers, it is important that all observer's clocks are accurately synchronized with Universal Time, and with a precision substantially better than one second. This requires vigilance and careful checking by the observers, who need to be familiar with their instruments and how the integration intervals are determined. This is particularly important with the introduction of the more complex CCD photometers. Ideally each observer should have access to their own time source, and a GPS solution is recommended. It is also important that the information about timing peculiarities are carefully checked and recorded and passed on to the data analysts.
