Looking for used copy of ,"Analyzing Light Curves: A Practical Guide"

Anyone have a used copy of Grant Foster's ,"Analyzing Light Curves: A Practical Guide? That you would like to sale?

Available online

Hi David,

You can purchase a copy from Just do a search on the title.  It costs $39.95. This is not a used copy.

Good luck,

There is also another one:

Brian D. Warner, A Practical Guide to Lightcurve Photometry and Analysis

regards Bernhard

Light Curves of Variable Stars, A Pictorial Atlas

Light Curves of Variable Stars, A Pictorial Atlas, by Sterken & Jaschek is also another excellent text on this topic.

Ad Astra,

No longer available online?

Searches at for 'Grant Foster' and 'Analyzing light curves: a practical guide' fail to display the book. A search for his name does display his book on statistics. Perhaps the light curves book is out of print.

Indeed it's absent from lulu

Indeed it's absent from, and from anywhere else I can see. still lists his statistics book.

Worse, I recall we have CHOICE courses depending on the lightcurve book. Possibly AAVSO (someone with IP skills) could reach out officially to the author & negotiate duplication rights.

Available now from Amazon

I've just checked on Amazon's web site. It seems to be available there. See attached screen shot.

When I looked on Amazon a little while ago, it was not available.

Amazon not shipping this item to Australia

Should have read the screen shot more carefully.

Amazon will not ship this item to Australia.
