Generating a Report for the AAVSO

Full Article

This note shows how to generate a report for the AAVSO using Mira AL, AP, and Pro. This document is taken from the Mira User's Guide.

If you are a member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers ("AAVSO"), then Mira provides a handy tool that simplifies submitting variable star measurements as part of the Aperture Photometry package. This tool formats observations of one or more target stars, using one or more standard stars, in one or more images using the AAVSO's new "extended format". Various output options are available and the image below shows the report being listed in a Mira Text Editor window. You can directly submit the report produced by Mira to the AAVSO. Details concerning report submission and the format are available from the AAVSO at http://www.aavso.org.
