This is not a formula, but a factor...
The sum difference between Molczan and Quicksat magnitude determination is 
approximately 1.5, with Quicksat being brighter in magnitude.

See http://www.physics.ox.ac.uk/sat/brite.html
for details.

On another note, can anyone give me a formula for converting Molczan
maginitudes (50% at 1000 km) to quicksat magnitudes (100% at 1000km). I
think ive got a formula but Im not sure...
