Photometric observations of the mutual phenomena of the Galilean satellites at the Pulkovo observatory in 2014-2015 [EPA]

We present the results of photometric observations of the mutual phenomena in the system of Galilean satellites obtained during 2014-2015. The observations were performed using the 26-inch refractor, Normal Astrograph, ZA-320 telescope of the Pulkovo Observatory (084) and MTM-500 telescope at Pulkovo mountain station at Kislovodsk (C20). We made observations a total of 72 phenomena. We had derived 51 light curves of good and medium quality for 34 events. The RMS of determining the brightness is within a range from 0.02 to 0.19 mag, the average RMS is 0.06 mag. This work was supported by RFBR grant (project 15-02-03025).
