So, much has been accomplished since last Friday!
I made a couple of data structures (with instruction from Beth) to combine the catalogs of the different bands. So now, instead of reading in a bunch of files to make plots, etc, I just have to access either the North or South catalog I made. Sweet.
Next, continued to go through literature searching for the answer to the star-galaxy classification mystery. Finally I found a "SExtractor for Dummies" guide, and after a bit of searching found a section that said that the continuous scale rated objects from 0 (galaxy) to 1 (star).
Goals for the day:
Re-plot the ra-dec from the new catalog.
Plot fwhm against the classification.
Use this to approximate a cut off as to what we'll call a galaxy or star.
Also look at range of fwhm and use this to get an idea of what aperture size to use from the magnitude data.
As of lunch time:
All plots in the goals section have been made! RA vs Dec in both north and south, as well as all 8 fwhm-class plots in each band, N and S.
Proceeding to check out galaxy cut-off values as well as fluxes.
