Hi everyone. It's been a while since I submitted new variables to VSX and I've lost my hand a bit. In these evenings I found a suspicious variable (in Aladin "dubius") and I would like to complement my photometry with those of the surveys; so I would like to see if there is photometry for this star.
How to do? I only tried ASAS-SN but the data doesn't convince me. What other surveys can I see? Thank you

Hello, in addition to ASAS…

Hello, in addition to ASAS-SN, you can use CSS, ZTF, SuperWASP, TESS.....

For candidates of different brightness, different data are usually used. ZTF is more used for 13 ~ 20 (21) and so on You can also combine multiple pieces of data together.

Such as ZTF r+ZTF g、ASAS+SuperWASP、TESS+ZTF、TESS+ASAS...... You can also add your own observations.

Of course, when submitting findings or revisions based on data mining results, references should be added, etc. Specific reporting requirements and details can be found on the VSX website.

I hope I can help you.
