Try as I might the plotter refuses to put north-up and east-left. Eg on chart 11404QFW Field=B

Hi Marty,

Before you try anything else, go to the bottom of the VSP page and click reset. You may have some parameters enteed that are preventing you from getting the result you want.

Then, type in the name of the star you want in the top field.

Select B for the scale.

If you want north up and east left you can click the radio button for CCD- or - you can scroll down to where it says  

WHAT NORTH-SOUTH ORIENTATION WOULD YOU LIKE?--> click north

WHAT EAST-WEST ORIENTATION WOULD YOU LIKE?--> click east

If that does not work for you email me at mikesimonsen at aavso dot org and we'll try to figure it out.
