Super fast update because I have to go pick up the chilluns:

Allframe still doesn't work.

Got the max likelihood code working (thanks to Dave) on the SDSS data.

Almost ready to run the max likelihood code on the KPNO data--want to double check my input first.

In lieu of Allframe results, the next step with my stack is artificial star testing, right Beth? Will look at addstar tomorrow.

Also tomorrow: look more closely at max likelihood results, run the code on KPNO stars, commence the testing of artificial stars.

  1. We definitely don't want to actually begin artificial star testing yet. It doesn't hurt to familiarize yourself with the general approach, because we'll want to insert artificial stars into each frame anyway (at least at first). But until we know for certain whether we are going to allframe or use the photometry of the stack - then we can't actually emulate our procedure!
