Signal-to-Noise Ratios for Possible Stellar Occultations by Pluto
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
Signal-to-noise ratios and magnitudes in the Johnson BVR system are presented for mine stars that might be occulted by Pluto during the period 1985–1990. From these calculations of the signal-to-noise ratio that could be achieved with a 1-m telescope, we find that each star (if occulted) is sufficiently bright to give useful information about a possible atmosphere of Pluto.
