Transformation with Vphot

Due to the New England winter storm currently affecting the area, phone coverage at the AAVSO may be much reduced until Wednesday. The staff is still available via email, and we suggest using that method to contact us if you need assistance.

I am a new user of Vphot and trying to use transformation coefficients of my system with it. I have entered the coefficients into the telescope information but when I ask the program to start the transformation it delivers a message saying that Tv is missing. I attach a screen shot showing the data I have entered and the software message. I am using 2 filters (V and B) and the Tc's of my system are: Tbv = 1.302 Tb = 0.1178. Vphot asks to enter Tv instead. I would also like to know the procedure to transform magnitudes with Vphot as I couldn't find a tutorial in this regard.

Thank you for your help.

I have inserted the missing value and I have been able to do the transformation then. This is the first time I transform instrumental magnitudes into the standard system using Ensemble photometry thanks to Vphot. It is an amazing software.
