Dip update 109/n

[Orig: Oct 22, 2017]

Hi everyone,

Below is the light curve as of a few hours ago with a new point from OGG (no TFN to report due to clouds). Note that the OGG point from the night before shifted slightly. This happens because we generate these light curves first using the "quicklook" images produced by the LCO BANZAI pipeline, which are available almost immediately after observations are taken. Final reduced images are produced at the conclusion of the night at each telescope, when all science and calibration frames have been transferred to LCO headquarters. Differences between the two reduction processes are typically indistinguishable, but the final reduced images (which use the night's best calibration frames) are the best science quality, and we switch to using these in our analysis once they are available. This is why the change is seen in the following day's post.

PS: These observations are happening because of the wonderful backers of our 2016 Kickstarter project. The Kickstarter campaign has ended, but we are still accepting donations to purchase additional observing time on the LCO 0.4m network. Thanks in advance for your support!
