A few things: The conversion between magnitudes is dependent on the filters being used, you can see it on the tables from the website you linked. That being said, the conversions available in there will not be useful for you if you are trying to replicate Stern et al 2005, as they use redder filters (in the website with the conversions, the longest ...

There are two ways to think about this change: firstly in terms of the amount of light energy. The rule for magnitudes is that "five magnitudes is a factor of 100" So to find the change in luminosity between two magnitudes you can calculate $$\Delta L=100^{(M_1-M_2)/5}$$ With your values I get 0.47, or about half as bright at full eclipse. The ...
