Is there a way to exclude data from a VSTAR plot?

ie; can I exclude an observer (myself?) from a data plot of the last 300 days and it's phase plot?

Found it; Select observations and EDIT, Delete selection. Works great, but tedious.

Exclude observations by creating a filtered set

Hi Ray

You can exclude multiple observations by:

  • creating a filtered set of observations (see Filtering Observations, p 42 in VStar manual), then...
  • selecting only the Filtered series in the Plot Control Dialog, then...
  • selecting all observations in the observation list (click on one row then ctrl-a on Windows, command-a on Mac, for example), then...
  • Edit -> Exclude

Does that make sense?

More complex filter
Hi Ray It may just be that you need a more complex filter. If you want to describe the condition under which an observation should be filtered, I can give you a filter expression. David
