Special Notice #347: Correction to AAVSO Special Notice #346

April 9, 2013:  In AAVSO Special Notice #346 (http://www.aavso.org/aavso-special-notice-346), IU Leo was said to have a close companion about 2 arcsec to the NE. This is not correct - it is IY UMa that has this close companion.

We extend sincere apologies to Dr. Szkody for misquoting her and to our readers for the error.

This AAVSO Special Notice was compiled by Elizabeth O. Waagen.

Alert Notice 473: T Tauri stars observing campaign

November 6, 2012:  Darryl Sergison (University of Exeter) has requested AAVSO assistance with a campaign he is organizing on six T Tauri stars. He writes: "In Autumn 2013 I [and my PhD supervisor Tim Naylor of Exeter University are] undertaking a new study into the nature of pre-main-sequence low mass stars, using time series optical spectroscopy and UV-Visual-IR photometry...to build a clearer picture of the environment around young solar-type stars and characterise their various disc, accretion, and outflow structures.

Special Notice #262: Long-term monitoring of AGN targets extended

November 2, 2011:  The observing campaign described in AAVSO Alert Notice 443 (M. Templeton) has been extended through the end of November 2011. One of the original targets, NGC 6814, has been removed from the target list for the remainder of the campaign.
