EA spreadsheet available

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

As promised, the spreadsheet of EA stars in low galactic latitudes is available. There are two worksheets - one containing all 2495 stars and the other derived from a macro I penned which only lists those stars with amplitudes above 0.9m.

Next step will be to make that smaller sample even smaller by removing those stars which are definitely EA, leaving a 'hot list' of dubious, or little-studied, objects. Just an idea though!

The spreadsheet is Excel 97, which I know is practically antediluvian now, but I assume that later versions can open it.

John Greaves has put the stars in the spreadsheet through various filtration methods and it appears that there is 1 likely candidate and 2 less likely ones (based on infrared excess). All of them are faint, and may be better suited to CCD observation.

The likely one is MN Ser, and the less-likely ones CK and GV Mon. John's list does not include stars South of -20°. Maybe a look among those stars using perhaps ASAS would be an idea.
