AAVSO Special Notice #65

Support for HST Observations of PQ Andromedae
September 10, 2007

We have been informed by Dr. Paula Szkody that science observations of
PQ Andromedae with the Hubble Space Telescope have been scheduled for 
this coming Wednesday, September 12, 2007  and Thursday, September 13, 
2007 (UT).  Dr. Szkody requests intensive coverage of this object through
the night of September 11/12, 2007 (Tuesday/Wednesday UT) which is when
the final decision will be made on whether PQ Andromedae is in quiescence
and is deemed safe to observe.

Please use the observing constraints given in Alert Notice 356 as a guide
when making observations.  As stated in the Alert Notice, both positive 
detections *and* fainter-than estimates of PQ Andromedae are useful for this
campaign.  The primary requirement is that we can show that PQ And is faint
enough to safely observe with the Hubble Space Telescope.

Alert Notice 356 is available at the following URL:

PQ Andromedae (0223+39) is at R.A. 02:29:29.61 , Dec +40:02:40.0

Charts for PQ Andromedae may be generated using VSP:
