YSO database up-databased!

The membership database is currently undergoing upgrading/testing. Web functions that involve an interface with the member database (webobs, etc.) may experience intermittent problems. We hope to have this issue resolved within 24 hours (by 5pm Eastern Time on October 1st or 12:00 UT). Thank you for your patience.

Along with other updates, I have just run through the existing database for YSO programme stars and had a clear-out. Many stars that previously only had "pox" (not 'poxy') sequences have now been blessed with official ones, and some stars have turned out not to be YSO at all (WX Sco is a mira, for instance). This latter group have been deleted from the DB, though their charts are still there - you never know, that star thought to be a YSO, then recategorised as another type, might turn out to be YSO after all. Stranger things have happened.

  Looks great, Mike! I hope

  Looks great, Mike! I hope to be outside and starting regular observations of the YSO targets in Cygnus and Cepheus soon. My work schedule and the dismal weather here has been keeping me away from the eyepiece for months.
