Abstract: Three data reduction methods, applicable to time-resolved CCD photometry of open clusters, are described. A sample set of images is reduced independently by three people, using various approaches, and the results are compared. The test reveals systematic differences in the FWHM and magnitudes produced by the different software. The reduction package MOMF and pure aperture photometry are found to be equivalent in precision, but the results obtained with these methods should not be merged when high precision is required.
