Today we went on a field trip to CVI Melles Griot. It was this really small lens-making company and the tour was shorter than we expected. The lunch afterwards was really good though, we went to a sub shop. Afterwards I finished the excel sheet of the observations of MP Mus and T Cha. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon reading a paper about color-color diagrams and their correlation with a star's circumstellar disk. The infrared color-color diagrams that I will be working with are J-K vs. H-K. Using this graph I believe we can find out if any of the T-Cha or MP Mus candidates are brown dwarfs or not.
