High frame rate imaging based photometry - Photometric reduction of data from electron-multiplying charge coupled devices (EMCCDs)

Context. The EMCCD is a type of CCD that delivers fast readout times and negligible readout noise, making it an ideal detector for high frame rate applications which improve resolution, like lucky imaging or shift-and-add. This improvement in resolution can potentially improve the photometry of faint stars in extremely crowded fields significantly by alleviating crowding...

GRB afterglow studies at the Nordic Optical Telescope

Using the 2.56-m Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) on La Palma we have observed most of the known optical afterglows to gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). We here briefly report on the discoveries of the optical afterglows of two recent SAX GRBs (GRB 980519 and GRB 980613) and the detection of their host galaxies. GRB 980519 was bright upon discovery () and occurred in a faint () galaxy...

Cam A: a new dwarf low-surface-brightness galaxy on the Local Group outskirts?

We present a deep I-band image of the nearby dwarf irregular galaxy Cam A obtained with the Nordic Optical Telescope with 0.6-arcsec seeing (FWHM). The distance to Cam A, DMW=1.9 Mpc, is estimated from the tip of the red giant branch seen at I=22.8±0.2 mag. The youngest stellar population of the galaxy seems to be of age about 100 Myr. Relying on its barycentric distance, DLG=1.6...

Constraints on the optical afterglow emission of the short/hard burst GRB 010119

We report optical observations of the short/hard burst GRB 010119 error box, one of the smallest error boxes reported to date for short/hard GRBs. Limits of and are imposed by observations carried out 20.31 and 20.58 hours after the gamma-ray event, respectively. They represent the most constraining limits imposed to date on the optical emission from a short/hard gamma-ray burst...
