Title

H alpha filter calibration using psf photometry on h and chi Persei

Abstract

Using the photometric system defined in Joner & Hintz (2015) we examined the stars in the young open clusters H and χ Persei. Using DAOPHOT we determined magnitudes through the narrow and wide Hydrogen alpha and Hydrogen beta telescope filters and used these to create the two indexes defined in Joner & Hintz (2015). These were then calibrated against stars in M67 and NGC 752. We will present overall results for each cluster as well as the psf photometric process.
