July 16, 2015: Roque Ruiz-Carmona (Ph.D. candidate, Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands) has requested AAVSO assistance with his campaign to observe 17 cataclysmic variables (CVs) with the William Herschel Telescope (WHT) next week.
March 30, 2006: Kaori Kubota (Kyoto University) has asked for observations of V1343 Aquilae (a.k.a. SS433) in support of an observing campaign using the Suzaku X-Ray satellite. V1343 Aql is listed as an eclipsing X-Ray source according to the GCVS 3rd Edition. It consists of an early type star and a neutron star or black hole with relativistic jets detectable at X-Ray and radio wavelengths. Kubota reported it currently at 14th magnitude.
Its location is: R.A.: 19:11:49.6 Decl.: +04:58:57.9 (J2000)
Notes: Please continue to monitor RT Cru as it continues to decline slowly from its outburst that began in 2021 and after it returns to minimum. - Elizabeth O. Waagen, April 4, 2023
This campaign has been extended indefinitely. Dr. Karovska requests monitoring of RT Cru until further notice. - Elizabeth O. Waagen, 17 April 2020
