Walt Cooney put AAVSONet scope K28 through a semi-tough test recently - collecting Sloan g' and r' data on a mag 15 variable that he discovered some years ago.

Go to http://www.aavso.org/vsx/ and search on VSX J064448.1+210222 scroll down to Supporting Documents to see a phase plot.

Not too bad for an 11-inch SCT on a commercial fork.

More data on similar targets is being collected as I write this....

And another variable joins

And another variable joins the K28 list of accomplishments.  VSX J131431.4+355333 was accepted to VSX a little while ago.   It's a 17th magnitude RRc in Canes Venatici.  K28 images produced some very nice g' and r' light curves.  The phase plot is in VSX under supporting documents.  Thanks Tom!

Clearest skies,

Walt
