Dr. Greg Laughlin (UCO Lick Observatory/Transitsearch.org) and Dr. David Blank (James Cook University) are conducting a photometric monitoring campaign for exoplanet transits of HD 13445. The windows for possible transitare:
December 11 20:51 - December 12 05:00 (UT)
December 27 14:58 - December 27 23:36 (UT)
HD 1334 is located at RA 02:10:14.4 and Dec. -50:50:0.5 (J2000).
June 3, 2016: Dr. Margarita Karovska (Harvard-Smithosonian Center for Astrophysics) is urgently requesting B and V photometry of the symbiotic variable CH Cyg from now until at least the end of August. Observations made twice a week are sufficient; time series observations are not needed. Spectroscopy would also be very welcome and appreciated.
May 25, 2016: Roque Ruiz-Carmona, the principal investigator on the observing campaign on 20 CVs that was announced in AAVSO Alert Notice 543, reports that the campaign has been revised due to telescope issues. He writes:
May 24, 2016: Roque Ruiz-Carmona (Ph.D. candidate, Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands) has requested AAVSO assistance with his campaign to observe a set of 20 cataclysmic variables (CVs) with the William Herschel Telescope (WHT) at La Palma TONIGHT.

SPECIAL AAVSO ALERT NOTICE ON DWARF NOVAE
Do continue your close monitoring of dwarf novae. Dr. Stiening from Stanford University and his colleagues will be observing these stars from Nov. 25th to Dec. 4th at Mt. Lemon, Arizona, and they have requested our help once again.
