Three related comparisons between photoelectric an visual magnitude are made: (1) photoelectric v vs mv for 260 stars listed in the Revised Harvard Photometry, (2) photoelectric magnitude (measured by author) vs chart magnitude for 183 stars on preliminary AAVSO charts, and (3) photoelectric magnitude (from published literature) vs comparison star magnitude for 124 stars on standard AAVSO charts. It is clear from thes edata that important improvements in sequence accuracy, and in the accuracy of the resulting light curves, will be achieved with the expanded use of photoelectrically measured comparison stars.
