S Aps Super Faint

Hi All

The RCB star S Apodis has reached about 16.9V on the decline (a record ??) as of December 30.7 UT (jd 657.2).

kind regards,

Steve

Thanks for posting that, Steve. No wonder I can't see it yet. I am very interested in this star ond thought it could be the lowest ever recorded. It certainly looks like it.

Does anyone have a recent estimate of S APS? There is nothing current in LCG. I am sure I am looking at the right star and it's about 136. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.

Hi Stephen,

Yes, I'm sure you've got the right ID. Just submitted 2 'new' obs from Sept and Oct (in Rc) that support your recent visual. Assuming a very approximate V-Rc value of near +1.0 it probably would have looked near 134V and 129V on my two dates. Seems like visuals can run a few tenths higher or lower than those supposed V values so your suggested 136vis a few nights ago looks right on to me. It's great that you are following it.

best regards,

Steve
