Special Notice #301: Retraction of Special Notice #300

October 23, 2012:  Multiple observers have checked the Hyades and found no evidence of the transient mentioned in by I. Shelton in ATel #4513.  There is no object visible in the field according to observations by Patrick Schmeer, Emmanuel Conseil, and Ulisse Munari.  Doug Welch notes that the object appears non-stellar on the image that was posted to Shelton's website, and suggests it may be the product of a cosmic ray hit.

As the object has been shown not to exist, the request for observations made in AAVSO Special Notice #300 is cancelled.

This AAVSO Special Notice was issued by M. Templeton.
