  Title A Simple, Portable Apparatus to Measure Night Sky Brightness at Various Zenith Angles Type Journal Article
  Year 2010 Publication The Journal of the American Association of Variable Star Observers Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 38 Issue Pages 221  
  Keywords Remote Sensing  
  Abstract We describe a simple apparatus for making measurements of night sky brightness as a function of zenith and azimuth using “off-the-shelf” equipment: a Unihedron Sky Quality Meter with Lens, a protractor with plumb-line, a tripod, and a hand-held compass. Compared to a photoelectric or CCD photometric system, this apparatus is simple to set up and use and does not require complex data reduction procedures. Thus, this apparatus makes measurements of night sky brightness as a function of zenith and azimuthal angles quite amenable to students.
