  Title Campaign of sky brightness and extinction measurements using a portable CCD camera: Sky brightness and extinction measurements Type Journal Article
  Year 2011 Publication Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 412 Issue 1 Pages 33-48  
  Keywords sky brightness; monitoring; light pollution; skyglow  
  Abstract In this paper, we present the results of a 12-yr campaign devoted to monitoring the sky brightness affected by different levels of light pollution. Different sites characterized by different altitudes and atmospheric transparency have been considered. The standard photometric Johnson B and V bands were used. An extinction measurement was performed for each site and each night, along with a calibration of the instrument. These measurements have allowed us to build sky brightness maps of the hemisphere above each observing site; each map contains up to 200 data points spread around the sky. We have found a stop in zenith sky brightness growth at the two sites where a time series exists. Using zenith sky brightness measurements taken with and without extensive snow coverage, we weighted the importance of direct versus indirect flux in producing sky glow at several sites.
