Re: [vsx-dis] Re: Suggestions for VSX
- I believe Paul has AstroPlanner catalogs for the GCVS and NSV (plus
supplement), so a good amount of bona-fide and suspected variables for
use in the program right there. Of course, Paul can't keep these
catalogs in lock-step with the relentless advancements in the
refinement of their data, so that's why it would be a great idea for
AstroPlanner to be able to query VSX in the background for ALL
variables known to us within a given field of view. His program would
then be able to show, for example, that a new nova-like object that
just popped off last night (and got submitted to VSX a few hours ago)
culminates at 0230 that night.
We'll see what we can do.
