Correction to Alert Notice 713

In AAVSO Alert Notice 713, I incorrectly determined the Zwicky magnitudes that were included in the table ot Observatiions submitted to the AAVSO. The online version of the notice has been corrected, and a corrected notice was issued. My thanks go to Sebastian Otero for letting me know about the error and providing correct Zwicky magnitudes.

Good observing,

Elizabeth

Can anyone verify?
