CHOICE: How to use VSTAR begins next week- sign up today!

Registration is now open for the CHOICE course "How to use VSTAR". You can sign up by visiting the AAVSO Store.

September 5 - 30
How to use VSTAR

This course is intended to provide participants with a systematic
coverage of VStar's current functionality, an appreciation of the ways
in which it can be extended, and how it can be used for variable star
data visualization and analysis.
You’ll learn how to create mean plots, phase plots, and perform simple
period analysis. This is not a course on statistics but relevant
statistical concepts as they apply to the use of VStar will be
introduced through reading and discussion.
You must successfully complete exercises and weekly quizzes as well as
a final examination to pass the course.
VStar is written in the Java programming language, requiring at least
version 1.6 to run on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and OpenSolaris.
