Charts for the tutorial

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

I've started observing variable stars after many years stargazing. Splitting doubles is fun, but doesn't last long with my 10x50s. Tracking a variable star makes me much more interested in getting out in the cold, because you never know what you may find :)

The 10 star tutorial was my first step, but now that I control the VSP better I wanted to print some charts for those stars. However, I cannot get a good chart for eta Aql or bet Lyr, for example. All the comparison stars in the tutorial seem to be now "suspected" variables, so their magnitude is not shown.

Could I get updated charts for the tutorial? Are the observations done with the charts in the tutorial valid to report?


Thanks in advance for helping this newbie!
