Just tried to print out a chart for this object and got an error saying it is not found by its name. I was able to get a chart by coords entry. Could someone add the proper name to the Db? Thanks!

I had no problem printing out this chart.  Try leaving a space between HS and the coordinates.  If you go to the alert notices and copy/paste, you will rarely have problems in naming conventions.

I did copy and paste from the alert notice! Maybe the software needs a slight modification to generally ignore white spaces in names. I have run into this problem several times before, and it is a bit irritating to try to figure out exactly the right format to type in, down to each space!

My sincere apologies for the confusion over the spacing in the name HS 0218+3229. We used to omit the space and I did not internalize its presence when I checked the VSX entry.  I have corrected the webpage for AAVSO Special Notice #315.

Good observing,  Elizabeth Waagen

Minimum is below 15.5v

I observed it last night visually at 16.3 so maybe it is quite red to appear so far below the quoted min, or maybe its not been covered well?

Hello

The light curve generator shows about a half dozen observations of this object at 11th magnitude and several hundred others at 16-17th.  There is not even an 11th mag object near this source.  Could the observers doing Vis on this object, double check, as something is clearly wrong.  There are about a half dozen ccd observers with it at 16-17.

 

Thanks

These are all from the same observer, along with another observation from the same observer that is marked "fainter-than."  My guess is that these are all fainter-than observations.  We'll check with the observer.  Thanks for pointing this out, Gary!
