I recently posted on the forums area unconfirmed stellar variability discovery results I obtained by analyzing available photometry data from a CCD survey telescope. These results indicate that maybe for the first time this legacy star is shown to be variable.
Is the approach of obtaining results not personally observed but instead derived from available surveys acceptable for AAVSO posting or passing off to VSX scrutiny?
Suppose, for e.g., I grabbed some Kepler raw data and did variability analysis. Would AAVSO accept that?
In actuality I have been part of a small not-so-Citizen Sky nor Zooniverts team of amateurs analyzing CCD photometric data from a survey instrument. So far I have "discovered" around 50 stars that exhibit periodic behavior where none had been noticed before. Mostly these are pulsating variables, but a couple offer clear signs of eclipsing binary transits.
I guess I am looking for a place to park my unconfirmed results where they may be of use to variable star enthusiasts.
