Oke (1990) Spectrophotometric Standards

Oke (AJ, 99, 1621, 1990) has provided absolute spectral energy distributions covering the wavelength range 3200 to 9200Å in AB magnitudes for 25 stars. The measurements were made with the Double Beam Spectrograph of the Hale 5m telescope. The reduced magnitudes are tabulated at 1Å intervals from 3300 to 4700Å and at 2Å intervals from 4700 to 9200Å. Comparison of the fluxes with those determined elsewhere showed that Oke's absolute magnitudes are systematically brighter by 0.04 mag. The magnitudes and fluxes plotted have been corrected for this effect. Colina & Bohlin (AJ, 1931, 1994) tabulate the differences between the original Oke fluxes, in terms of synthesized B and V magnitudes, and Landolt photometry for each star individually.The AB magnitudes were converted to flux (ergs/cm/cm/s/A) using the formula
ABMAG = -2.5 alog10(Fnu) - 48.59
(Hamuy et al., PASP, 104, 533, 1992), where Fnu is in ergs/cm/cm/s/Hz.

Cautionary Note:

These data have larger uncertainties than tabulated in the following spectral regions:

  • below 3400Å (atmospheric and instrument transmission);
  • 4000–4500Å (CCD flaws);
  • 4650–4800Å (overlap between orders, dichroic cut);
  • telluric A and B bands (around 7615 and 6875Å respectively);
  • above about 8500Å (second-order contamination).

 

Note: The ABMAG listed for HZ 4 in Table 1 of Oke (1990) is in error. The value should be 14.47.
