Errors of import from ZTF to VSX.

Wed, 10/28/2020 - 09:58

The VSX has errors importing info about new variables from ZTF data. For example, ZTF star J195055.38+263108.0 Mag. range 0.000 (0.000) g 
( ). I suggest fixing these errors. 

All the best, I.Sergey

Hi Ivan,
This one -and the other star you reported privately- were the only 2 stars with such issue.
The ZTF catalogue gives mean magnitudes and amplitudes in the g and r passbands but in some cases there are only observations in one of those filters. In these two cases while I was compiling the catalogue I had chosen the filter that had no data instead of the other one, that's why the 0.000 and 0.000 figures were being displayed.
It's all corrected now.
Thanks for pointing it out.
