Schema Clarification - ncands

Hi all,

Had a (hopefully quick) question about these fields in the Objects table schema:

| ncand | Number in light curve | int |
| ncandgp |Number in light curve with good quality and brighter than reference | int |

What’s the precise criteria for ncandgp? i.e. what is defined as good quality? Could it be added to the schema?

Hi Josh
ncand is the number of candidates (detections) associated with the object. ncandgp is the number of those with positive difference magnitude – the function diffpos – and have real-bogus greater than 0.75 – the function good. For more information, look at the code in the links above.
Hope this helps
