Continued observations of V745 Sco

We recently released a significant update to the backend systems for the AAVSO website. While most of the bugs introduced by this update have been fixed, there may still be problems we haven't fixed. If you run into a problem, please email webmaster@aavso.org

Hi all, 

My name is Tom Finzell, I'm a PhD candidate at Michigan State University, and I am a collaborator of Jennifer Sokoloski. We are wondering if people would be willing to continue photometric observations of V745 Sco? V745 Sco is a recurrent nova, a possible source of synchrotron radiation, and has many interesting scientific possibilities. Being able to map out how its brightness evolves in time would help us tremendously. 

We know that V745 is getting a little bit faint, but even noisy data is better than no data. 

Thanks! We really appreciate it!

Tom Finzell

Hi Tom,

V745 Sco  VRcIc captured in the last few hours. Will likely get them into our database this evening (Atlantic Time). Hopefully some positives !

regards,

Steve

Hi Tom,

I have the V band observation of March 20.740 UT in the database. V745 Sco had faded to 17.10 by that time. I have the brighter Rc and Ic from the same night as well and will submit them tomorrow.

The immediate field of this NR is quite crowded with faint stars very similar in V mag to V745 Sco itself at the moment. Caution taken with ID !

Take care,

Steve

Hi,

 

I have beenobserving V745Sco since its outburst in B, V and I. Lately I stopped first B and then V as it got too dim , but continued in I. My AAVSO initials are HMB. All data have been submitted to the AAVSO and they are all time series (although lately rather short ones of about 1h). Most of the submitted data are mine.

Regards,

 

Josch Hambsch (HMB)

 Thank you! Your observations

 Thank you! Your observations (and the observations of others, of course) are very much appreciated! We've been able to track the decline with amazing time cadence. Further, your observations have also allowed us to determine what is feasible, in terms of follow up spectroscopy. 

Thanks for the feedback
