VStar Presentation

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.

VStar was on the road again! This time it was at the AAVSO Annual Meeting held in Woburn Massachusetts on October 29th - 30th. I gave a demo on VStar, David joined us by Skype, and Doug Welch described how he and David worked together to create a plug-in which makes it possible to load SuperWASP data. It was great to seehow much interest was generated as a result of giving this talk and I think we recruited several new enthusiastic users. We also got more feedback and ideas for future features.

If you think you might like to help spread the word about VStar, you are welcome to use the same Powerpoint presentation. Thanks to liberal use of Nico's icons, it looks really great - clean and simple.

We also have a Spanish version of the same thing thanks to the excellent translation skills of our most recent VStar Team member, Jaime. He is presenting this at an astronomical meeting in Sonora Mexico this week. Both versions are attached.

Boston and Sonora talks

I just wanted to thank Sara and Doug for their presentation at the AAVSO meeting! It was fun to bevirtuallypresent for this and to have the chance to make a few remarks about future development possibilities. I felt a bit like Max Headroom peering out and waving to the assembled members and watching the presentation from my low-resolution Skyped-in vantage point. Thanks also to Jaime for the Spanish translation of the slides and his talk in Mexico. How did that talk go Jaime? Jaime has also expressed interest in helping with a Spanish localisation (text) of VStar. Some infrastructure needs to be put in place before we can do that though. You'll see a few trackers on the subject of localisation, one of which I'm still working with Bikeman on sorting out. I might even be able to twist Bikeman's arm to help with German localisation (text) eventually. So many trackers, so little time. Regards, David

Jaime's talk in Sonora

Jamie told me this via email about his talk in Sonora: "My talk went fine. I had 12 people there, as part of a course on variable stars & photometry." I've attached a picture he sent me from the talk. Thanks Jaime. Regards, David
