    stars for Monday night

    Looks like a very clear night everywhere in the western USA.  You guys 
    in the west are doing a superb job with TT Ari, but in this present 
    spell of clear weather, I though I'd suggest spreading some targets 
    around.  There are a bunch of rapid pulsers (intermediate polars, or DQ 
    Her stars) which need to have their pulses tracked - and it's our job!
    The evening guys are IGR0023+61 = RX0022+61 and V2306 Cyg = WGA1958+32 
    and V709 Cas (small amplitude - requires long run).  The morning guys 
    are MU Cam = RX0625+73 (practically all night), RX0636+35 = Aur, 
    RX0704+26 = Gem, and BG CMi.  It would be great to get some pulse 
    timings for these stars!
    
    I'll be reading email all night here in AZ.
