AL Com, 30th April

Forums Variable Stars Something interesting by M88 AL Com, 30th April

For the record my image of AL Com from earlier tonight.  Had to image it well before astronomical twilight as cloud was forecast to come in off the North Sea…as it did just after the image was taken.  The disadvantage of imaging from sea level in Suffolk and not from a mountain in Arizona!

And a couple of questions…

1) Is there any literature out there on AL Com?  A quick ‘Google’ just came up with an Astrophysical Journal article from 1992 which didn’t really say very much.

2) And are all these observations being collected together for a VSS report or similar?
