Hi all,

Cheers

Jonathan

Hi comp stars team,
 
I was after a sequence for AO Aqr - 22:11:31.90 & Decl.: -22:47:16.51  It;s an EW binary, with V Mag 11.0-11.6.  I was hoping for a BVRI sequence if possible, with a 60' FOV.
 
Thanks!

This Target, AO Aqr, now has a workable sequence.

Good Observing,

I just tried as well and have the same problem with the email being rejected.

I wanted to make a request for a sequence for V425 Vel
10:16:20.60 -55:35:51.0
Mag range aprox V=  8 to 9
Be star
Chart scale E
I use a CCD and only really need B and V. The purpose of the measurements is to flux calibrate simultaneous spectra taken of this star that seems to be changing its spectra on a short time scale.
Thanks

The compstars@aavso.org address should be working now. It was just one of several lingering issues from the recent security breach.

If you have new requests please submit them using the instructions given on the page- http://www.aavso.org/request-comparison-stars-variable-star-charts

Our apologies for any inconvenience. If you experience any trouble please let me know immediately.
