AAVSO Alert Notice 693 announces a campaign on the YSO V582 Mon (KH 15D). Please see the notice for details and observing instructions.

Many thanks, and Good observing,

Hi Elizabeth, just checking but the submission name to the AAVSO says V694 Mon - is this a typo and it should read V582 Mon?

cheers, Merv

Yes, name typo - report as V582 Mon

Hi Marv,

Yes, this was a typo on my part and it should be V582 Mon - on the day I wrote the Alert Notice for V582 Mon I had also been working on one on V694 Mon (MWC 560), and the Alert Notice numbers were 692 and 693. I confused myself! Thanks for catching it -

Good observing,


KH 15D = V582 Mon activity

The near-IR spectroscopy scheduled for this star is underway.  Although the star has been faint and difficult to measure, some additional I-band photometry would be helpful in asessing the state of the system ust now.  I have obtained V and I data in the past two weeks, but it is now cloudy locally (Arizona), so cannot follow the star during the spectroscopic observations.
