Yesterday, when I checked the AAVSO light curve after submitting my observations made in the last 3 months, I noticed that there have been no observations of R Tri submitted since April, although this star are already clearly visible on the morning sky. Extrapolating the previos observations R Tri must be bright enough for binoculars now however.
This is not the first time I noticed the lack of observations for othervise well observed variables on the morning sky. In the case of omi Cet, last year there were no observation in the last 3 weeks of July, althoug Mira Ceti was already observed 1-2 weeks before. This was the case with SS Vir: almost now observation between October and December.
And this is the case even for previously well observed circumpolar Heritage CVs too when they are low on the sky. John Bortle has just recently mentioned that there are no observations for UV Per in the AID submitted since April. But even TZ Per and S Per are also quite underobserved recently.
Maybe we need to start a campaign for morning stars/rising stars? Let's start with R Tri and UV Per, then slowly we can watch omi Cet as well...
