Preferred Cadence of Observations

Hello--What observation cadence would be ideal for this campaign?

cadence etc

Hello Gary,

 

TESS will be observing at a 30-min cadence, so anything shorter than thaty would be great. If you have a filter wheel, it would be great to take I light curves as well, as TESS observes in one band only.

 

I hope this helps.

Best wishes - clear skies,

Stella.

Additional request for coverage of SS Cyg

Dr. Juan Echevarria (Instituto de Astronomia, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico) has also requested coverage of SS Cyg; his campaign will run over the next two weeks. At this time, the observing procedures requested in Alert Notice 673 are also appropriate for Dr. Echevarria's campaign.

Many thanks, and Good observing,

Elizabeth
