In science:

We performed the VPM technique in two Schmidt fields of ∼ 10 square degrees each on the basis of a large number of altogether more than 200 digitised Tautenburg Schmidt plates in the B band with a time-baseline of three decades (Meusinger et al. 1997, 2002).

The resulting crossing is then digitized, that is the effect of the front end electronics is simulated so to produced a digitised crossing or raw data.

Saturated stellar images on digitised photographic plates are many times greater in area than the ‘seeing disk’ seen in unsaturated CCD images.

Open circles represent data points digitised from King’s Figure 1.

Consequently we might expect, for a digitised photo–positive plate scan, a near–linear relationship between the plate magnitude (logarithm of the ‘counts’ from aperture photometry) and stellar magnitudes in this case.

An Epson flat-bed scanner was used to digitise 375 plates containing the field of CF Oct, at a resolution of 5.25 arc sec per pixel.

Fig. 3 shows a radial plot of an observed (‘sky subtracted’) stellar profile (square symbols), obtained from a digitised plate, plotted as arbitrary intensity versus 5.25 arc second pixels.
Aperture Photometry of Saturated Star Images from Digitised Photographic Plates
We measured radii on 6 digitised plates whose plate magnitudes were close to the ensemble mean determined from 90 plates, and then took averages for each star.

Figure 3: Radial profile plot showing a comparison between an observed (skysubtracted) saturated stellar profile from a digitised Bamberg plate (points) and a synthetic profile (solid line) derived from the polynomial fit to the data of King (1971).
Aperture Photometry of Saturated Star Images from Digitised Photographic Plates
The purpose of the study was to illustrate that the known, extended stellar radial profile, when digitised as a photo-positive from a photographic plate, can be used successfully for aperture photometry, even though (indeed, because) the stellar image is mostly saturated.

If the experiments are extended by including a range of parameter values and by analysing, in addition to the proposed digitised voltage differences, the raw voltages, the models can be compared in their overall performance and plausibility.
