Dear CBAers,

Keep after the bright new star in Cas!  We're pressing ahead with it on
every front we can: X-ray, UV, spectroscopy, calibrated photometry, and 
time-series photometry.  For northerners, it's now a perfect target up 
there in Cas, successfully shrugging off the challenges of the full Moon.
The nature of the star seems quite mysterious... a garden-variety A star 
jumps 4 magnitudes, and still looks like a garden-variety A star!

Message on other stars later today...


BTW a V filter would be a nice choice for a time series.  B would be 
pretty good too.
