Greetings from Flagstaff!
I attempted to get a visual observation of V1117 her last night and got an estimate of mag 15.3 @ 2200 Arizona time. I used my 32" dob with good seeing conditions. It would be good to get verification of this. :):)

I received images from NH2 on 06/13 taken between 01:10 and 01:20 UT.
V= 12.836 mag
R= 12.732 mag
I= 12.115 mag
No Blue data
V1117 HER may be coming out of a fade that seems to have begun 07/11/21. V faded from 12.5 to low of 13.8 on 07/19 and the last several measurements on 07/21 have it up to 12.95.
