July 5, 2016: Further to AAVSO Alert Notice 539, Deanne Coppejans and colleagues request optical monitoring of the Z Cam dwarf nova RX And in support of their campaign to observe it with the Very Large Array (VLA) in their ongoing radio jet research.
Deanne writes in a post to the AAVSO Forum thread on this campaign: "We are going to try and catch RX And in quiescence again in the next three weeks. The optical coverage of it is still sparse, so any observations you take of it will be extremely useful."
August 7, 2015: Further to AAVSO Alert Notice 525, we are entering the critical period of observations for KIC 02856960. Time series observations are urgently requested for this eclipsing binary beginning immediately (2015 August 07, JD 2457242) and continuing for the next five days, through the end of 2015 August 12.
August 4, 2015: Dr. Gregory Sivakoff (U. of Alberta) has requested optical monitoring of the galactic microquasar V4641 Sgr beginning immediately, and continuing for the next 120 days, or until it is no longer observable from your location.
February 13, 20115: Patrick Schmeer (SPK, Bischmisheim, Germany) reports the announcement on the CBAT Transient Object Confirmation Page (TOCP) of the discovery of a bright transient in Sgr on 2015 February 12.852 at an unfiltered magnitude of 10.9 by K. Nishiyama, using a 105-mm f/4 camera lens with an SBIG STL6303E CCD camera. Nishiyama notes nothing is present on a previous image from 2015 February 02.887. The transient has been independently confirmed with two pre-discovery images: by H.
December 6, 2013: Observer Carlo Gualdoni reports via the cvnet-outburst mailing list that the WZ Sge-type dwarf nova AL Comae is in outburst, with a magnitude of V=12.74 on 2013 December 6.185 (JD 2456633.1185). Gary Poyner notes on the BAAVSS mailing list that this is the first observed outburst of AL Com since October 2007. Both visual observations and CCD time series are encouraged.
September 10, 2011: Dr. Gregory Sivakoff (U. of Alberta) requests observations of the X-ray binary star MAXI J1836-194 as part of the JACPOT collaboration studying stellar radio jets from compact binaries. There is no predetermined duration for this campaign, but observations are requested now to coincide with ongoing X-ray and radio observations.
