50 forgotten Miras
The variable section of the Swedish Amateur Astronomers Association, SAAF/V, have adopted 50 forgotten Miras. One team member, Hans Bengtsson, have put together a list of 50 relatively bright but sparsely observed Miras that our members since February have observed. The goal is to see what these neglected stars is doing now, construct updated period elements, establish light curve shapes, max/min magnitudes etc.
The observations is done visually and photometrically with own equipment or by robotic telescopes. So far have about 600 observations been made and several maxima and minima have been recorded.
A project page (in swedish) with all the stars and current light curves can be found at http://var.astronet.se/50miror.php. The light curves is clickable to see the details about the observations.
