[5.14] First results from a Mark IV Camera

M. Richmond (RIT), TASS Collaboration

The Amateur Sky Survey (TASS) has started a regular series of observations with the new Mark IV system: a pair of 10-cm refractors with 2048x2048 CCDs, yielding simultaneous V-band and I-band images of a field over four degrees wide. We report on the first few months of operations with the Mark IV at Rochester, New York. We concentrate on the calibration and precision of stellar photometry for stars between eighth and fourteenth magnitude.
