Special Notice #60: Upcoming primary eclipse of ASAS182612

August 20, 2007: As described in Alert Notice 351, we are running an extended campaign on the newly discovered eclipsing Cepheid ASAS 182611+1212.6. Doug Welch has reminded me that the primary eclipse is predicted to be around August 28 around 0130UT. However, the eclipses are many days long, and the binary light curve is continuously changing, so don't just observe on the 28th.

Alert Notice 529: Observing campaign on 5 variables in Cygnus

October 1, 2015:  Dr. George Wallerstein (University of Washington) has requested AAVSO assistance in monitoring 5 variable stars in Cygnus now through December 2015. He is working to complete the radial velocity curves for these stars, and needs optical light curves for correlation with the spectra he will be obtaining.

Alert Notice 331: Monitoring requested on Cepheid variable 1320-02 W Vir

Longtime AAVSO member and colleague Dr. George Wallerstein, University of Washington, has requested our assistance in monitoring the Cepheid variable W Vir in support of his scheduled observing later this month at Apache Point Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico. Visual and CCD observations are requested. For PEP observers who can reach magnitude 10 or fainter, PEP-V observations are also requested.
