Can't add transformation coefficients when creating a new telescope profile

I am attempting to create a new telescope profile here (, but I find that I can't click to "Add filter mapping rule" or "Add transformation rule."  My students are having the same problem.

We may have found a workaround but this seems like an issue with the site.

I do have a telescope profile with the correct information on my account, but I don't know how to make it a "common telescope" so that other people could use it.  I would appreciate it if someone could help me do that or provide a solution to the problem above.

Thank you!

Adding mapping rules to a telescope profile

I believe the problem is that if you are creating a new profile, you need to save it once before you start adding mapping rules and transform coefficients.

Being able to share a scope or download/upload telescope profiles would be a nice feature. I'll add it to the list.
