Times-of-Minimum Databases

The AAVSO does not maintain a current database of times of minima, because there are several other groups already doing so.  Here are links to the most extensive of those resources:

The Published Times of Minimum Database

The AAVSO now distributes its published times-of-minimum data for eclipsing binary in single compressed files (.tgz and .zip), rather than as a searchable online index.  For data on a specific star, unzip the compressed file, and search for the star's name among the included text files.  These files contain updated publication information through November 30, 2005, the time at which the files were last updated.
