The Stars Illumination Calculator will calculate the:
Calculation Parameters: None of values can be zero
|Illumination of the unknown star (b2) [lux]|
|Illumination of the unknown star calculation|
|b2 = b1 ∙ 100.4 ∙ (m1 - m2 )|
b2 = ∙ 100.4 ∙ ( - )
b2 = ∙ 100.4 ∙
b2 = ∙ 10
b2 = ∙
|Stars Illumination Calculator Input Values|
|Apparent magnitude of the reference star (m1) |
|Apparent magnitude of the unknown star (m2) |
|Illumination of the reference star (b1) [lux]|
