Increasingly, software and data analysis are becoming the heart of what we do as astronomers, even amateur astronomers. More and more a lot of our data gathering is being handled by orbiting satellites and robotic telescopes. It is up to the human beings in the equation to analyze and interpret the results.
The SID Data Grabber is an application to help prepare an AAVSO SID report file from your Stanford/SARA superSID monitor log files. It offers a zoomable graphical view of the log data where you can click the graph to grab the times then puts them into the AAVSO format report file, ready for submission at the end of the month.

WinWWZ is a Windows XP-based tool for period analysis of variable stars or other time series data using wavelets. It is designed to work with data from the AAVSO International Database downloaded via the official form to download data but will work with most generic time series data sets and supports flexible input formats.
