AAVSO Catalog Services not available

VPhot does not seem to have AAVSO catalog services available; i.e. no photometry possible...

Is that related to the recent maintenance update or change of interfaces?

Cheers,

Helmar:

I concur and suspect you are right about VSP API change?? VSX still worked. Will check.

VPhot affected by API change

Yes, VPhot is affected by the VSP API change and is currently unable to access the reference database.

We're working on it!

VPhot Functionality

I checked other VPhot functionality. Existing personal sequences work and yield photometry. So problem may be limited to new comp selection. VSX search still works. No images in queue at the moment so I think upload queue is processing normally. Should be?

We are working on a couple of fixes at the same time, one temporary; one permanent. Oops, things are so inter-related! Sorry!

Catalog Up

Helmar:

Please check now and report finding. Thanks.

Back to old VSP until George Silvis is able to upgrade VPhot to new VSP. All hail Will, Matt and George!!

Re: Catalog Up

Hi Ken, Will. Matt and George,

No I do concur with Ken:     "All hail Will, Matt and George!!"

However, still problems here when I try to create transformations for Z Peg:

1) Vphot creates AAVSO reports with my own defined sequence(s) for V and B  ->  works

2) Importing both AAVSO reports int TA V2.40  ->  works

3) Processing with TA gives error message:

"# No CREFMAG available. Possibly bad chart reference. No KREFMAG available. Possibly bad chart reference."

I tried this morning and this evening with different chart no., both do not work  .

I have the TA first page and the TA Report attached - do I do something wrong?

 

Hth,

Helmar (AHM)
