FO Aqr

Alert Notice 644: FO Aqr monitoring requested in faint-state study

July 27, 2018: Dr. Colin Littlefield (University of Notre Dame) writes:

"In both 2016 and 2017, my colleagues and I requested AAVSO campaigns on the intermediate polar FO Aquarii to study its first-ever faint states. In both campaigns, we were delighted with both the quality and quantity of the data that we received from AAVSO observers [AAVSO Alert Notices 545, 598).

Alert Notice 598: Intermediate polar FO Aqr fading and photometry needed now

September 6, 2017:  Dr. Colin Littlefield (University of Notre Dame) and colleagues have requested AAVSO assistance in monitoring the intermediate polar cataclysmic variable FO Aqr beginning immediately. This campaign is similar to the one on FO Aqr requested by Dr. Littlefield and colleagues in July 2016 (AAVSO Alert Notice 545).

Special Notice #425: FO Aqr XMM-Newton observations scheduled

November 9, 2016: Further to AAVSO Alert Notice 545, time series observations of the intermediate polar cataclysmic variable FO Aqr are requested to provide simultaneous coverage of XMM-Newton observations scheduled for 2016 November 13 19:43 UTC to November 14 8:13 UTC.

Alert Notice 545: FO Aqr time-series observations requested

July 13, 2016: Dr. Colin Littlefield (University of Notre Dame) and colleagues Drs. Peter Garnavich (Notre Dame), Erin Aadland (Minnesota State), and Mark Kennedy (University College Cork) have requested AAVSO assistance in monitoring the intermediate polar cataclysmic variable FO Aqr beginning immediately.
