I have just begun doing photometric observation and the canpaign fro V1117 Her fading is my first also. Because of where I live i am using iTelescope to do my imaging. I got an image of V1117 last night (10/22?2021) and I used VPhot to to the data reduction, a 17" Planewave scope with a V filter. I was a single 240 s image. I arrived at a magnitude of 13.350 at 2021-10-23 01:33:00. Lst night was clouded out and I will check tonight. Because of costs (about $15/image) I need to be selective in my targets-perhaps working with a campaign wight be a good start.
