Thank you Eddy

Nice to know that Eddy !

Indeed yesterday night my estimation (bad ? 'cause of the moon) was +12.1 / +12.2 for this star. 

48 observers made a visual estimation of T CrB during the last 50 days, QZ Ser is close to T CrB, so maybe with this post you can push them to have a look at QZ Ser as well???

I'm very impressed on how active you are for visual estimations from a city like Ostende. 

Anyway, thank you for this alert. 

Michel

QZ Ser outburst

Hi Michel,

Thanks for your respons. Yes indeed it's strange that so few observers follow QZ Ser though it's not far from T CrB. It shows very infrequent outbursts. It's an UGSU dwarf nova so now it's most probable an superoutburst.

Here I live in the outskirts of the city so it's pretty dark on my location. As I am an CV addict.. I make so many observations...

Kind regards,

Eddy
