The standstill of RX And, which began during the first week of Sep of this year, is ending. The star had fallen to a magnitude of 13.6 when I observed it this evening (Nov 14.9965UT).
Yes, I had it at 13.12 (unfiltered CCD with v point) on Nov 14.8278. The AAVSO v band CCD images during this standstill seem to show several waves of slow fluctuation of half a magnitude or more, not so evident in visual obs which show more scatter. A very active standstill this has been. SMI
I estimated RX And at mag.12.9 on Nov 14.80 and at mag.14.4 on Nov 16.98. The standstill ended!
