Eggen observations added to AID during 2018

During 2018 98 stars contained 8,074 U,B,V,R, and I Band observations which were added to the AAVSO International Database. Any remaining remaining observations for these stars are either in photometric systems not supported by AID or contain problems that make the observations unreliable.

Validation of the transcribed data was done by

1. Comparing the Eggen observations against the light curve generated from AID over the same date range as spanned by the Eggen observations. The VSTAR tool was especially helpful here.

2. Checking against the original data cards.

Below the TOTAL line, line 102, is a list of stars with the number of observations added to AID equal to 0. This list of AID members lack observations for AID due to a total lack of observations or a lack of AID supported observations, for example observations made in Eggen's 102,64,62 system,
