I have been submitting spectra to AARS for 5 months now, and really wanted to share the data here with AAVSO, especially since I have been grabbing the Nova Per 2020 info. Back in Aug I submitted my first spectra here on a known star and it was accepted (i think). But now, for some reason, when I go to submit, the system does not see my equipment. It sees location, but no equipment drop down. I am sure this is operator error...
Here is what I show in the dropdown
Here is the gear
and here is what it says when trying to submit
Have added hw/removed hw (note- it will not let me remove the first hw description in the list), add sites (I found the _ betweem Carrollton_TX was needed to match FITS header)
Would really like to add my data collection in but this is a lot of work! What am I doing wrong?
sorry tried to add in images but... that failed too.
That happened to me when I didn't have "Observing Type" set as "Spec" in my equipment setting. Check that out.
Thanks that was it! I had it as CCD... Appreciate the help!
