1929+14 KX Aql in Outburst
Not seeing anything posted so far on CVnet's "Activity at a Glance" listing of the latest DN outbursts I would call attention to the current activity of 1929+14 KX Aql. This dwarf nova, situated a few degrees west of Altair, is of fairly long period in the separation of its outbursts and observer coverage of its activity is usually rather sparse.
Currently KX Aql is still in the brightening phase of an outburst. On Aug 22.9UT Jeremy Shears detected the star at magnitude 16.0C, while Gary Poyner reported 15.7 visually a few hours later. Last evening, on Aug 24.06 , I saw it at magnitude 14.1 visually, undoubtedly still rising. Maxima of this star can be as bright as the mid 12's.
My location is expected to be clouded out for at least the next few days barring me from further observation. The moon will be adding its interference in coming days as well. Therefore, I would like to urge at least several observers with larger visual instruments, plus those whose instruments have CCD equipment, to put this dwarf nova on their nightly observing schedule for at least the next week or two so as to provide good documentation of this outburst, caught so early in its brightening phase.
