Support for sloan filters

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email

VPHOT now supports sloan u, g, r, i and z filters, in addition to the standard B, V, R and I. The code for the sloan filters are SU, SG, SR, SI and SZ.

This means that you can create and save sequences for any of these filters. VPHOT will automatically recognizes which filter has been used (assuming that the codes above are used in the FITS FILTER key), and apply the appropriate sequence for analysis and reporting.

Other filters can be added to the system as well. Let me know if you have any needs in that respect.
