Hello

I am on V405 Peg as we e-read.  Noticed suggested a light curve in B.  I see some observations in V in the LCG.  Anyone game for B?  Its a challenge.  Just got the first image off the scope (RC-24) and it looks like 17.9 with a SN of 40.  Hope others will confirm.

Thanks

PS at 8 pm local time.  Clouded out.  Got 8 exposures of 5 minutes each, and posted PT on LCG.  It was about 16.8 most exposures. 

Well its 9:01 pm and its clear again.  Started a 2nd B filter time series.

Hi Gary,

Just saw your note, and I am on V405 right now. Doing 300s in B. First image showing SNR = 31. The target will be getting more toward a light dome soon. I'll get 10 or so images and provide photometry right after.

Hello Michael

I am clouded out again here at 9:45, but the weather shows another sucker hole coming in about half an hour.  I will wait it out here and see what develops.


Glad you are on V405 Peg.  More data is always better.  What aperture are you using?  What country and state are you in?

Hi  Gary,

I'm using a Meade 16 inch SCT-ACF. QSI 516 CCD @f/7. Transparency average, seeing good. Observing from Newcastle, Ontario Canada.

BTW. I met you at SAS as part of the M31_V1 "group". I was the "new guy" ;-)

Hoping for your sucker hole!

Hello Michael

I remember you now.  Saw your data posted.  Looks good.  We are clearing again here.  This will be my last attempt.  I actually have some astronomy paper writing to do tomorrow, and will have to bail to get some rest for that.

Gary,

Just finished a 10 image run though V and uploaded the data. The star is coming in at 15.9. Scope is at low air mass, so calling it quits. Unfortunately, it looks like cloudy weather over the next couple of nights will hamper further observation.
