There are many RCB stars for which we don't have good BVRI photometry when they are at or near maximum light.

# Stars At Maximum NOW:

AO Her , SU Tau, V2552 Oph,  V3795 Sgr, V4017 Sgr, V517 Oph, V532 Oph, ASAS-RCB-5,  ASAS-RCB-14,  ASAS-RCB-16, ASAS-RCB-17


# Stars Rising - getting near maximum. 
V391 Sct, ASAS-RCB-7,  ASAS-RCB-18,  ASAS-RCB-19, ASAS-RCB-21, IRAS 1813.5-2419

BVRI photometry of any of these stars while they are at max would be very useful.

Thanks!

RCB photometry

HI,

I am willing to observe some of the stars mentioned from my remote observatory in Chile.

Please give priority to 5 of the stars.

We met some years ago at the meeting in Armagh. As you know I follow V348 Sgr since a couple of years in BVI filters. Data are with the AAVSO database.

Regards,

Josch
