Paper Abstract

A method of atmospheric transmission determination by stellar observations has been improved. The essence of the method is that Bouguer equations corresponding to observations of all the stars during one night are solved jointly. This is possible when the atmospheric transmission dependence on time is a continuous function and can be approximated by a broken line or parabola sections. The method does not have any principle restrictions concerning the amount of stars observed during night. Therefore it allows to obtain the maximum accuracy of atmospheric transmission determination.
