The Abastumani Astrophysical Observatory is located in Tbilisi, Georgia (41.8? N, 42.8? E; ~1700m msl alt). There are several instruments that collect nighttime optical observations, spectrographs and photometers, with the earliest observations made in 1942. The spectrograph data is on film and the older photometrical data for the red/green [O] lines are on paper charts. However, the length of the data set makes it attractive for long-term studies if the data could be digitized.
