Magnitude Range of Light Curve Plot

Citizen Sky is now officially permanent part of the AAVSO. In the coming weeks we will be moving additional content to the AAVSO site and freezing this site as an archive of the 1st three years of the project. Please visit the new landing page for future updates.

I think I experience a small bug when submitting multiple
observations (using "submit another observation link" after
viewing the plot). For the first star a plot range is chosen
such that it encompasses the relevant data, but for all
subsequent stars the plot range of the first star is used.


froesccn, I've forwarded on your message to Rebecca and Aaron. I think they'll be able to address this issue. Thank you for letting us know. Brian


Hi, Froesccn. Sorry about the delayed response, I was on vacation this week. This is something that our webmaster Kate Davis needs to look at. However, she is currently under a heavy deadline for early next week on another project. Next week she'll look at this and will post a response. Thanks for letting us know about this!

Hi, Actually, this is not a bug but something that is hard coded into the light curve. This light curve was just designed to give you a quick view of the data so the magnitude range is fixed. If you would like to set your own magnitude range and customize other parameters, please use our light curve generator: http://www.citizensky.org/viewdata/lcg I hope that helps, Kate

thanks that explains it. I know how to generate custom light curves, Ijust thought it is confusing for the user if you enter an observation and get forwarded automatically to "see your observation at work", but the plot range may be chosen so that the observation (and indeed all data) may fall outside the plot range.

I think this's not a bug also. It's just a design matter

Yes, I agree with you, it is confusing for the user.
