How would an amateur astronomer witha cheap telescope measure apparent magnitude? And real magnitude? A related question: Are mass-luminosity and distance-luminosity relations theoretical relations predicted by theory or empirically observed relations. If the latter, how accurate are they to calculate distances to faraway objects, say in other galaxies? Thanks Ashok
