After a very long absence I finally returned to turning Eggen cards into observations for the AID. I've created a spreadsheet which summarizes  what has been done up to the present. During the years 2018, 2019, and 2021 observations for 177 stars were added to the AID.  The number of individual U, B, V, R and I data points added to The AID totals 12,476. 

I've created a set of spreadsheets which lists the 177 stars as well as additional stars listed in VSX but lacking AUID.  Although I've double-checked the observation data with the cards and compared the resulting observations against the light curves provided by the VSTAR tool as a 'sanity' check it would be nice to have additional eyes take a look as well.  These spreadsheets will be updated as I  add new star data to AID.

The spreadsheets can be downloaded in a number of formats by clicking on the 'File' tag near the upper left corner of the display. Clicking 'Download'  and then 'PDF document (.pdf)' takes you to a preview of the printed document. I recommend printing in landscape mode. You can print just the current sheet you were viewing or the entire workbook of sheets by choosing the 'export' option listed on the right side menu of the print preview page.  The file 'Eggen_Summary.pdf' will be downloaded to your system when you click the blue 'EXPORT' button in the upper right corner.

Greetings Jack.
Great work here keeping this project ticking.

I see some of the data cannot be submitted to the AID because the VSX stars do not have AUID's. I've copied you on a note to Sebastian of the VSX team to clear that hurdle.
