Alert Notice 700: EE Cep observing campaign 2020-2021

Note:  Please continue observations at a cadence of 1 observation per week at least through 2021 June 15. See the post by Principal Investigator Dariusz Kubicki in the forum threads for this campaign (URLs below).  -  Elizabeth O. Waagen, 2020 June 29


The eclipse of EE Cep has occurred but continued monitoring is requested to establish post-eclipse behavior.  - Elizabeth O. Waagen, 2020 May 21

Alert Notice 696: R Aqr photometry (especially B) and spectroscopy needed

Note: Continued observations, particularly in B, V, and visual, are needed now and through the coming year. R Aqr is presently approaching solar conjunction and observations are very difficult, but they are extremely important as R Aqr is also approaching minimum. Please observe as long as possible now and pick up again as soon after conjunction as possible.  -  Elizabeth O. Waagen, 1 February 2021
