Modification of APASS Download script

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.

Hello everyone,

The script that generates APASS output in .CSV format has been changed slightly upon request.  The only modification was to the header line at the top of the file -- the APASS data format has not changed.  The change made to the header was to replace blank spaces with an underscore ("_") and to convert the ascii pound ("#") to the word "Number".  Both of these changes were made to facilitate use of APASS .CSV files with ds9.

If you have any questions, please contact me directly via email.
