Reading ASAS Data

The membership database is currently undergoing upgrading/testing. Web functions that involve an interface with the member database (webobs, etc.) may experience intermittent problems. We hope to have this issue resolved within 24 hours (by 5pm Eastern Time on October 1st or 12:00 UT). Thank you for your patience.

Can someone point me to a guide to interpreting ASAS Data?  I have seen a reference in a thread to a tutorial but have not located it anywhere on this site.  Thanks.

Hi MJB,

Sure: it's on the chart team's google site:

To 'do it all' properly, you'll need to read Bruce Sumner's bit as well. Looks a bit daunting at first but once you get into the swing it's not too bad.
