Reporting DSLR Data

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 just had a chat with Arne about DSLR submissions and we came up with the following requests for those submitting DSLR data to the Citizen Sky/AAVSO database.

If you are using the spreadsheet provided by the DSLR team, please report your data as using a "V" filter and click the enable the "Transformed" flag. Also, put "DSLR" in the "Comments" field. Until a rigorous study has been conducted to see how accurate DSLR data can be transformed, it is best to identify the data in case such a study finds limitations.

Also, when transforming please use a standard field (such as the Pleides) instead of local field stars from another database. This will insure quality magnitude measures and also an appropriate range of color.
