CH Cyg

Special Notice #417: CH Cygni B and V photometry urgently requested

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.

Special Notice #268: Chandra observations scheduled for CH Cyg and monitoring urgently needed

23 March 2012: The Chandra X-ray satellite observations of the symbiotic variable CH Cyg have been scheduled as part of Dr. Margarita Karovska's (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics) campaign. Please see AAVSO Alert Notice 454 and AAVSO Special Notice #267 for complete details on this observing campaign. The HST observations of CH Cyg have already been made.
 

Special Notice #267: HST observations of CH Cyg scheduled and monitoring urgently needed

March 15, 2012:  As announced in AAVSO Alert Notice 454 (http://www.aavso.org/aavso-alert-notice-454), Dr. Margarita Karovska, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, has requested multiband photometry (all possible bands), high-speed photometry, spectroscopy, and visual observations of the symbiotic variable CH Cyg in support of HST and Chandra observations. She is studying the central region of CH Cyg and its jet.

Alert Notice 454: Monitoring of CH Cyg requested for Chandra and HST observations

March 2, 2012:  Dr. Margarita Karovska, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, has requested visual and photometric observations of the symbiotic variable CH Cyg in preparation for and support of Chandra and HST observations scheduled for later in March 2012. Dr. Karovska's observations will be a followup investigation of the central region of CH Cyg and its jet that was discovered a couple of years ago. AAVSO observations are requested in order to monitor the state of the system and correlate with the satellite observations.
