The current dark-sky flat-fielding technique and processing yield photometry internally consistent to 2-3 However, we know of certain deficiencies in the current schemes, and there are possible alternatives that could produce better results. We will investigate several of these alternatives ( i.e. twilight sky and dome flat-fielding) during April Protocam run and assess possible improvements (especially in colors), relative to costs in processor design and speed.
