Passband in VSX: WISE W1 vs ASAS-SN V

I am submitting a revision for a star initially entered in VSX based on WISE variability analysis.  It is listed with mag in W1.  ASAS-SN has good data for this in V.  Would it be best to give priority to the W1 passband baseed on the discovery or to change it to V which is more likely to be useful to AAVSO observers?

thanks,

Cliff

V range

Hi Cliff,
Yes, give a V range based on ASAS-SN data. Beware of the presence of companions, if there are objects nearby, check the VSX FAQ page and deblend the data.
