Spectrum Database

Gary Poyner


I would very much like to set up a database of amateur spectra of VS and link it to the VSS website.  Roger and I have spoken briefly about this, and he seems to be ‘up for it’ too.  I’m hopeful that we can discuss further at the VS meeting (York, June 21 see BAAVSS website) and move on from there.  The AAVSO have been slow to move into this field, so I would like to see the VSS take the initiative.  

Robin:  Very impressive stuff at this faint limit.  Many congratulations.  I was singing your praises to Bradford AS last night, where I was speaking on Historical Novae.  I’m pretty sure they will be contacting you with a view to a possible talk to their group sometime in the future.
