fade of V373 Cep

The UXOR-type variable V373 Cep has hit a minimum of 13.3. I made it 13.2 recently, and it will be interesting to see if it gets any fainter. This is a fascinating area. V373 is in a little cluster of bright stars which even visually looks as though nebulae are involved. Might be worth someone taking a pretty picture! There are other young variables in the immediate area but they are of rather small amplitude.

Quick edit: the nebula is NGC 7129, very photogenic. I have shown the posn of V373 in the attached pic. Enjoy.

Can't find it

Hi Pox, where is it on the pic? I can't find it.

And do you know that on the YSO section is no list of YSO stars to observe? I was looking for it but could not find a list, only a few stars.

oops! I think I must have

oops! I think I must have uploaded the pic before I saved the version with the V shown. Hold on... OK, new version uploaded. You might need to zoom in on the pic to see my feeble red text though!

With reference to the lack of stars on the list, if you are using the AAVSO link, no, there won't be. That's because AAVSO 'took over' my own site but neglected to also take over my PHP/SQL programming along with it, so there is no access to the database. I have told them about it but nothing has been done yet. If you use the dedicated site on my own web space all the stars are there. From the front page choose 'star search' from the LH panel.
