The DSLR techniques clearly show the ingress of the Epsilon Aurigae eclipse in during the fall of 2009 and early 2010.  The latest point is Jan. 18, 2010 showing the flattening out of the light curve since the start of the new year.  The top data is eta Aur; the middle trace symbols is zeta Aur (blue "+"), the next to the bottom trace is the reference star lambda Aur (black "+" with error bars), and the bottom trace is mu Aur.

I am currently working on the transformation coefficients for the DSLR.  It is not a trivial solution.  As soon as these are solved I will submit the data.  DFC
