Southern 10-Star Tutorial

Over at Citizen Sky we just published a Southern Hemisphere version of our 10-Star Training Tutorial. It is similar to the original tutorial except that it includes stars and charts for the Southern Hemisphere and is not focused on epsilon Aurigae.

5-Star Analysis Tutorial

The 5-Star Analysis Tutorial  (originally written by Aaron Price as part of the Citizen Sky Project, but re-written by Paul York in June 2014) is meant to introduce you to basic ways of data processing and inspection. It does not assume a background in astrophysics, statistics or anything similar. However, all good researchers need to understand what their data actually mean. So if you have never made a variable star estimate before, we strongly recommend first reading our 10-Star Observing Tutorial.
