ASAS3 (All Sky Automated Survey)
Ok Guys and Gals,
I have been working with the list of LPV stars breaking down the observation by year and determine which observations are visual and which are digital. I do my breakdown by what the observer reports, thus if they put down vis it goes into the visual column, if it is V it goes into the digital column. I assume that all self reporting is correct; however I am running into a problem with ASAS3 data. Sometimes it is reported as Vis data and sometimes it is reported as V data. SO my question is in 2003 were they actually doing visual observations? If not I am going to have to re-evaluate some of the data. The only other problem is that sometimes someone put n/a in for the data type. Fortunately there is a very small number of such data and I discard it for the analysis.
I have hopes of my analysis completed by the November meeting of the AAVSO where I will present a poster.
Cheers and clear skies from cloudy New England
