I really mean those that can be observed from one of the remote telescopes at the latitude of, say, Santiago, Chile. There are not many in VSX but V1159 Ori is one. V1159 Ori is a good candidate (UGER) as it can be observed from both hemispheres giving a good temporal coverage. Brightness in the range 13.5 to 15.5 so easy enough. Its also one of the topics in M. Otulakowska-Hypka and A. Olech, MNRAS 433, 1338–1343 (2013)  so I will get into its ~50 day supercycle at some point.

Interest has been heighten by recent poor weather on Tenerife.
