Analysis and Simulation of the Pi of the Sky Detector Response

L. W. Piotrowski, A. F. Zarnecki

Abstract


The Pi of the Sky project observes optical flashes of astronomical origin and other light sources variable on short timescales, down to tens of seconds. We search mainly for optical emissions of Gamma Ray Bursts, but also for variable stars, blazars, etc. Precise photometry with a very large field of view (20?×20?) requires a careful study and modelling of a point spread function (PSF), as presented in this paper.

Keywords


Gamma-ray Bursts (GRB); point spread function (PSF); wide-field camera.
