Abstract

 

Computerized monthly variable star reports usually start with the manual recording of data at the telescope, followed by the transcription of observations into a computer data bank to be sorted and printed out at the end of the month. With over 500 observations gathered each month to record, a computer program was written to allow direct data entry at the telescope, thus avoiding the later transcription of data.
