Modification of APASS Download script

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

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.
