Variable Star Search Utility

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

Updated June 2, 2008 to fix the link to the Variable Star Plotter.

VarStarSearch v3.0.1 is a variable star search utility that was developed by AAVSO member Dale Lehman. He has recoded the program in Java 1.6 to allow for multiplatform support. There is linkage to AAVSO's Variable Star Plotter (VSP) for chart generation, and some refinement of the search features. Please consult the help file for more information about this useful software.

Many thanks to Dale Lehman for developing this open source freeware for all of us to use. He may be reached at:
