Current Z Cam standstill...Well,not quite?
Bill Wilson (WWJ)
Whilst pausing over Z Cam longer than usual, I'm noticing small amplitude fluctuations around 0.4 mag, in a cycle of 40 seconds; as far as I can judge - I take an average time from 5 cycles on the stop watch.
Am I being deluded? If so, the impression just won't go away! I've put a “D” against my recent contributions, and a comment, but there's been no confirmation nor refutation from other observers, as yet.
In passing; I wonder whether the change in format from “Quick Look” doesn't discourage dialogue, as expansions are not immediately apparent. One does like to earn a credit, or to be smartly “put right”, in either case
