Transforms: Everything you need to transform your CCD observations

This page serves as a central location for the tools AAVSO voulnteers have developed and promulgated to help fellow photometrists transform their observations, making them compatible and more useful to the professional astronomy community.

These include:

Suggested Stars for CCD/CMOS Observers

If you are a CCD observer the Universe is your oyster. Nearly all the AAVSO program stars can and should be observed with CCDs and science filters. The primary advantages of CCD detectors over visual observers are the potential for very high precision photometry, which facilitates detecting very minute light changes, and the ability to record much fainter stars.
