Get this from a library! Advancing Variable Star Astronomy: the Centennial History of the American Association of Variable Star Observers. [Thomas R Williams; Michael Saladyga] -- "Founded in , the AAVSO boasts over members and observers and is the world's largest non-profit organization dedicated to variable star observation.

  This book contains everything you need to know about variable stars -- stars whose brightness varies noticeably over time. The study of variable stars has been a particularly popular area of research for amateurs for many years; the material contained herein serves as both an introduction to amateur astronomers and a useful reference source for seasoned variable star observers. Examining my data from the eight stars in the AA VSO Long Period Variable BVRI CCD observing program shows these long period variables have (B- V) values at maximum of + to +, while the.

Therefore, a specific treatment was necessary for variable stars. From a compromise between a loss of accuracy and a loss of time, it was deduced that a luminosity ephemeris is necessary for the observation of egularvariable stars with an amplitude larger than about magnitudes /1/. These stars are mainly long period by: 1. AAVSO, provisional designation UD 2, is a stony background asteroid from the central region of the asteroid belt, approximately kilometers in was discovered by American amateur astronomer Dennis di Cicco at the U.S Sudbury Observatory (), Massachusetts, on 24 October The asteroid was named after the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO).Discovered by: D. di Cicco.

AAVSO Long Period Variable Section These are fun stars to observe, AAVSO still needs observations of these stars, and best of all, they are easy to find and identify, so you won’t spend cold winter nights looking for them. You can spend your time observing them instead. Instead, this book tells the story of how an organization composed mostly of amateurs, the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO), 1900-1975 book to become a major source of information on stars that pulsate, explode, or otherwise change in by: 5.

Aavso Variable Star Atlas 2nd Edition. by Charles E. Scovil This atlas is most particularly useful for the visual observer of variable stars. For those who enjoy "star-hopping" their way to a particular variable star this atlas is without equal.

The combination of your own skills, a good set of binoculars, and this atlas will bring you to 3/5(3). The AAVSO published maxima and minima dates and corresponding magnitudes for long period variables north of declination ˚ from through in Harvard Annals, Vol Part 2.

The same type of information on long period variables over the whole sky from to was published in the Studies of Long Period Variables. Inin the United States, Gould he called for variable star observations and supported the variable star work of observers who did not partake in astronomy as a profession.

In Argelander’s star catalogue, Uranometria Nova, Argelander encouraged the study of variable stars.

Before AAVSO the study of variable stars was conducted principally by professional astronomers and the results were gathered in special publications like the book of Paul Guthnik3 on the history of Mira Ceti observations and the volumes edited by F.

Most of the bright variable stars are collected together andthe observer should be able to make his observations in.

Therefore the researchers enlisted the help of amateur astronomers, like you and me, through the AAVSO (American Association of Variable Star Observers) to help take all those observations and get those data points.

Make a total of observations of at least 15 different Long Period (Mira). Spectroscopic monitoring of variable stars is a relatively unexplored domain within astronomy, with the potential to produce a wealth of new information. While individual objects, such as some cataclysmic variables (CVs), have been studied with high time resolution spectroscopic observations spanning days or weeks, long-term spectroscopic.

Mira Stars - These long period variables are very large red pulsating stars having charts from the AAVSO Variable Star Plotter (or citizen sky) can be used. data is lost.

The term was first used in the 19th century, before more precise classifications of variable stars, to refer to a group that were known to vary on timescales typically hundreds of days.
