TESS Full Frame Images and VSX type VAR

I ran across an interesting source of TESS data.  See

https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2019RNAAS...3....8O/abstract

and their earlier paper

https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2018AJ....156..132O/abstract

Basically they have performed full frame photometry on the TESS full frame images and made the results available for sectors 1-5.  I took their CLEAN light curves and variability metrics and did a cross-match to VSX.  I found the results very interesting. 

Needless to say, there are more interesting things here than I can deal with in my lifetime.  So I thought I would share some of these with the community and see if anyone else finds them of interest.  I took the subset of light curves that match VSX objects of type "VAR" and put them on the web - http://occam.aavso.org/tess

These are the original LC files from Oelkers & Stassun with a header add that allows VStar to directly load using the Flexible Text plugin (https://www.aavso.org/vstar-plugin-library#flexible).  In comments in these files are also the variablity metrics.

I hope you find these interesting, and update VSX.

Attached are a couple interesting looking LCs.
