Bulletin 76 for 2013 published and available online
I am pleased to announce that AAVSO Bulletin 76 - predicted dates of maxima and minima of long period variables for 2013 - has been published and is available via the AAVSO Bulletin page.
On the Bulletin 76 page you will find a letter from me, an Introduction to the Bulletin, instructions on how to use the Bulletin, and various forms of the Bulletin itself (.pdf, .csv for spreadheets), including a generator you can use to create your own customized version! There is also a file containing the Bulletin stars in order of increasing need (that is, from those receiving the fewest observations last year to the most).
Please note that for the three double-maxima stars (V Boo, R Cen, R Nor), their predicted dates are not the in main Bulletin file or generator-created file but are in a separate file on the page.
THANK YOU to those observers whose contributions made the Bulletin possible, and THANK YOU to those of you who will contribute this year. You and your valuable observations make research on these important stars possible now and into the future!
Good observing - Elizabeth Waagen, AAVSO HQ
