An Interesting Connection Between 1-CCD and 2-CCD Mode Data
An observation of the Blazar PKS 2155 was made in 1-CCD mode in 1996/day 319-320 and then in 2-CCD mode in 1996/day 143-147. Figure 6 compares the SIS-1/SIS-0 ratios for these two observations. Remarkably it shows that the ratios are virtually identical! Moreover, the PKS 2155 ratios are compared with the SIS-1/SIS-0 ratio for 3C 273 from the 1996/day 201 observation. Figure 6 shows that the 3C 273 SIS-1/SIS-0 ratios are also virtually identical to both PKS 2155 SIS-1/SIS-0 ratios! This means that the relative degradation between SIS-1 and SIS-0 does not depend on CCD mode.
