The nonexpanding scenario was ruled out at the 10 sigma confidence level. These very same data are also re-discussed by Sandage, reaching similar conclusions.
These conclusions are not supported by the data for two main reasons. The first one is that, for the static scenario, Lubin and Sandage set the distance to d = (c/H0)ln(1 + z), which is valid only for the Einstein-de Sitter static case. This is not the cosmology we are testing here, where the Hubble relation is hypothesized to be d= cz/H0 at all redshift.
