A number of Committee members have been looking at the the possibility of a Society wide project to study variable stars. Pam is co-ordinating and collating their findings which will then submitted to the British Astronomical Association. The project is open to all members and is well suited to naked eye and evn better, binocular viewing. anyone interested in taking part should contact Pam or Jim for any information.
Information, charts and recording sheets have been put in compressed files. If you do not have Rar or Zip decompressing facilities I have added links to 7Zip and PeaZip which are both free to download, will open virtually all compressed file types and contain no unwanted junk.
Documents & information is downloadable as either a word doc or in PDF format.

Skully has been working on an app to automate data from variable star observations to a spreadsheet to assist Pam when preparing data for submission to the BAA. Below are links to the forms which can be used for reporting findings
