Table 2

True star magnitudes (note that stars A and B have variable magnitudes), true differences to star C, and estimated difference values estimated after deconvolution without and with saturation correction.

Star C (ref.) A B D
True magnitude 5.1 6.7–7.5 8.0–8.5 6.7

True magnitude differences 1.6–2.4 2.9–3.4 1.6
Est. diff., deconv. w/o sat. cor. 0.2936 1.4608 –0.0964
Est. diff., deconv. w. sat. cor. 1.1955 2.7718 0.8124

Notes. Note that the results with saturation correction are closer to the true differences.
