I want to expand my visual programme considerably and I recall that there was a webpage on the AAVSO website which could show whole constellations charts with the variables marked on them but I can't seem to find it now. If it is still available, could someone please show me the link?
The page is still (a lot of) work in progress. If that's not the one, then let's just wait for other replies.
What a great atlas! Thanks, Alexandru! Will be very useful when I update my visual programme. An alternative is the set of constellation charts available here (but coverage is a bit uneven).
I can't take full credit - I only added variable stars in an already existing piece of software (initial software by neizod here: http://code.google.com/p/open-sky/).
That is very nice and very helpful for one who wants to group nearby variables. This is unique and I hope since you say it's a work in progress that the work continues. It's awesome. Thx
Thanks for the replies! The link I was thinking of was the AAVSO one which Gustav posted, Alexandru's link looks like it will prove extremely useful also!!
About halfway down the page at https://www.aavso.org/online-resources is a table of constellation charts, most with their own links. Constellations without a link are subsumed in one of the linked neighboring constellation charts; for example, Lyn is displayed on the Her chart. The constellations are alphabetized from top to bottom within each column, rather than across the page; it took me a while to figure that out.
