New aperture photometry of QSO 0957+561: application to time delay and microlensing.

Abstract (from CDS):

We present a re-reduction of archival CCD frames of the doubly imaged quasar 0957+561 using a new photometry code. Aperture photometry with corrections for both cross contamination between the quasar images and galaxy contamination is performed on about 2650 R-band images from a five year period (1992-1997). From the brightness data a time delay of 424.9±1.2 days is derived using two different statistical techniques. The amount of gravitational microlensing in the quasar light curves is briefly investigated, and we find unambiguous evidence of both long term and short term microlensing. We also note the unusual circumstance regarding time delay estimates for this gravitational lens. Estimates by different observers from different data sets or even with the same data sets give lag estimates differing by typically 8 days, and error bars of only a day or two. This probably indicates several complexities where the result of each estimate depends upon the details of the calculation.
