Trying to rebuild my sequences :( and VPHOT will not let me edit the star HS 0229+8016 - as in changing the sky annulus settings. Says there is one or more invalid characters. Nor will it let me save it by that name. It used to allow this.

Hi Jim:

I also ran into this issue yesterday. It said + was an invalid character. I left it out and just used a space. However, that creates a problem when you try to upload the AAVSO report. AID can't find the star name without the +.

I also recall that + was previously a valid character. I suspect that is any easy fix for Geir?

Yes, that was easily fixed. Try now.
