David Benn wins AAVSO Director’s Award for VStar

One of our members, David Benn of Adelaide, has been awarded the AAVSO Director’s Medal for his development of VStar, a very flexible and extensible light curve visualization and analysis too that was developed for the AAVSO as part of the CitizenSky project.

Many of you will remember attending his outstanding workshop on VStar at NACAA 2010 – and indeed it was at NACAA 2008 where he and Arne Henden got together and hatched the idea of VStar. Read the citation at http://www.aavso.org/david-benn-receives-2011-directors-award, and about VStar at http://www.aavso.org/vstar-overview, where you can download it. It’s multi-platform.

Warmest congratulations, David!
