Comet Emission Bands

Five primary molecular species are included, based on our comet photometric program and the narrowband filters we employ :

In the case of the C3 and C2 bands, our narrowband comet filters only "see" part of the band; our quoted fluxes have already been adjusted to the full bands, knowing the band slopes and what fraction of the total bands are transmitted by the filters. For spectra, equivalent adjustments should be made for the fluxes extracted using spectral "windows" which do not include the entire emission feature.
