The SPA Variable Star Section observes a mixture of naked eye, binocular and telescopic variables.
Although there is some overlap with the programme of the BAA VSS, many of the variables are only observed by the SPA VSS so your observational data is very important.
The section’s Observing Notes describe the different types of variable stars, plus how to make brightness estimates.
Also included are Variable Star Charts which show the location of each variable and some nearby comparison stars that can be used when estimating the brightness of the variable.
A copy of these notes, plus some report forms may be obtained by sending a large SAE to the Director.
