I'm trying to submit my first specturm in the AV Spec, so a spectrum of a non-variable star like mentioned.

But it was unsuccessful because it cannot find an obscode!

In the fitsheader there is indead no obscode. How can i solve that? I tried already to add in the fitsheader a obscode = F65 , but that didn't helped.

Thanks for helping


Variable Stars South (VSS)
Spectrum submission

What software have you used to create the spectrum?

You should be able to automatically have the obs code inserted.

American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO)
obscode = Observer code


When it asks for an obscode, it wants the observer code that you were assigned by the AAVSO so that we can identify you as a registered submitter. Your obscode, which you can see if you view your profile is CWIB. If you have any more issues, please feel free to contact me directly:
