    Default [Now Standard in ACP] AAVSO charts for the web interface

    NOTICE: This feature is now a standard part of the ACP web interface. Thank you Dick for this great tool!

    All,

    If you are into variable star observations, here's a tiddler you can add to ACP to get variable star charts from an AAVSO server. There are five files attached. The ReadMeFirst describes how to assemble this utility.

    This utility accepts only the "conventional" variable star names, such as RR Lyr, V335 Her, ... . Arabic names (e.g. Algol) or Bayer designations (e.g. alpha Centauri) will fail. Here's a nice little description of how variable stars are named, in case you're interested: http://www.britastro.org/vss/nomencl.html

    If you have trouble, please let me know.
