K Corrections

  1. Oct 26, 2015 #1
    So I'm trying to k-correct some fluxes in 250μm (janskys) using the M82 template found here and the relevant equations found here (I also have the transmission filter function). The template is normalised to 5500 A and doesn't have a brightness so I fail to see how I can correct my observed fluxes to rest frame ones.

    Can anyone explain this? It's been a long day!
