Outburst detections continue to be reported to the BAAVSS Alert group on Yahoo as well as CVnet and VSnet.
Charts for ROP targets are available from the VSS chart curator John Toone, the BAAVSS web pages and the Variable Star Plotter for the AAVSO.
Further details of the ROP can be found on the BAAVSS web pages.
These charts are readily available from either the BAAVSS or AAVSO web pages.
All the data extracted from the BAAVSS database, with the accompanying set of lightcurves, have been sent to Prof Gaensicke.
Although the objects on this BAAVSS programme are well known to professional astronomers in that the orbital, primary and secondary star information is known in some detail, the long term study of these objects and how they behave photometrically over a period of time remains a grey area.
Details of the programme can be found on the BAAVSS
This will bring many benefits to the BAAVSS
, though as it is a large task it is likely to be 2012-'13 before this is operational.
We thank Clive Beech for his assistance in providing information from the BAAVSS
Charts for many ROP targets are prepared from Henden sequences, and are made available through John Toone for the BAAVSS, and the VSP for the AAVSO.
Presentations on the campaign have been made to BAAVSS meetings and to a range of local astronomical societies.
28) This programme was set up as a joint project between the BAAVSS
and The Astronomer magazine specifically to observe poorly studied eruptive stars of various types where outbursts occur at intervals of greater than one year.
