Hello! I just uploaded my first file of observations from 1-April-2013 for R PYX, S PYX, T PYX, WW PYX, RT PYX, and RY Lib. I used MPO Canopus to prepare the report.

    I would like to check I prepared the file appropriately and uploaded it appropriately. What would be the best way to check? Best regards.

If the file was accepted then the format must have been OK. It is rejected if ther eare any errors.

As for the data, I always go into the light curve generator and bring up each star that I have uploaded. You can then highlight your data and check that it is within the ballpark of other data that has been submitted.

Thank you. One observation

Thank you. One observation was rejected, adn I was not sure if the entire upload was rejected as a result.

    When should I check the lightcurve to check that the file upload went smoothly? Would the observations show up as soon as the file is uploaded? Best regards.

The data is there as soon as you have uploaded it. I check immediately after I upload.
