This forum thread is for posts about T CrB when the outburst occurs (predicted for 2024).  Be sure you are logged in to your AAVSO web account to post to this forum. If you don't have an AAVSO web account, see below.

AAVSO web account and observer code
To register for a free AAVSO web account, please fill out the Registration Form (be sure to include at least your first and last real names and your country in that form) and check your email (check your spam folder too) to finish setting up your password and account. This will allow you to log in to the AAVSO website to request an observer code, submit data, posting to the forum, subscribe to our email publications, etc.

To request an observer code, log in to your AAVSO account, click "My account" at the top of any AAVSO web page, then click the profile tab, then the "Request Observer Code" button. Initials will be automatically assigned to you. If you have ever had an AAVSO observer code (observer initials) in the past, please contact the AAVSO to recover your old initials instead of requesting new ones!

Submitting observations
Be sure you are logged in to your AAVSO account and have an AAVSO observer code before submitting observations.

  - If you have optical observations (visual, photometry) to report, submit them to the AAVSO International Database (AID) using WebObs.

  - If you have spectroscopic observations, submit them to the AAVSO Spectroscopic Database (AVSpec). Note that there is an observer validation process which you must complete before you submit the spectra of your choice. Further information and documentation can be found here. We strongly recommend you complete this process as soon as possible so you will not be delayed in submitting T CrB spectra.

Many thanks, and good observing,
