Dear CBAers,

Olde Whiteface will be pretty bright for the next week - especially in the 
north where the Frosty Moon rides so high in the winter sky all night 
long.  Bad for our quaint little enterprise.

But HS2331 is still quite well-placed, and not much threatened by nearby 
moonlight.  We have a long observing run going at Kitt Peak now, and are 
trying to get intense coverage of this star.  Among other targets, but 
this one is particularly worth a special push.

The other northern star I wanted to recommend is RX0704+26 = Gem.  A 
little faint for most of you, but possible... and oh, are you going to 
loooovvveee THIS light curve!
