The AAVSO is over 100 years old. In that century we have expanded into lots of different areas and it can be daunting for a new person to find a home.
Please use this forum as a place to ask questions on any topic. Nothing is too simple. The questions can be about observing technique, variable star science, the web site or even about which AAVSO meetings are the best ones to attend. If you have a question, ask it.
Here are a few quick links to other resources that may help you as well:
- Send an e-mail to AAVSO staff
- Our 10-Star Tutorial - A guide to visual observing variable stars aimed at the absolute beginner.
- Our mentor program - We can match you with a mentor either locally or online.
