RGB <-> Gaia G, R_P, B_P conversion formulae.

Folk here might be interested in https://arxiv.org/pdf/2107.08734.pdf which I discovered only this morning.

Lots of amateurs do not have any filters other than those built into their DSLR or OSC CMOS Bayer layers.

This paper uses Gaia EDR3 G, B_P and R_P data to calibrate the RGB spectral response of an average of 28 common cameras.
