Paper Abstract

After brief introduction to the Pi of the Sky project standard photometry method used in the data reduction will be described. After data quality cuts uncertainty of the single measurement is of the order of 0.018-0.024 magnitudo for stars 7-10m. With new calibration algorithm taking into account the spectral type of reference stars stability of the photometry algorithm can be significantly improved. Preliminary results from the BGInd variable are presented showing than uncertainty of the order of 0.013 can be obtained.
