Hi CBAers,

Here's the next star on the HST menu - RX0232-37.  This one is not only 
relevant to the forthcoming HST spectrum - it's also an absolute primo 
CBA target (or would be if it were a tad brighter).  So time series 
would be very, very valuable.  At 18.5, it'll be a stretch; but my guess 
is that this is a very, very ancient CV - older than WZ Sge, even.
Just knowing Porb would test this hypothesis very strongly!


Hi All, in particular Arne & Joe,

NB to this: I feel much more relaxed about this one, as it
should not show much activity - but of course STScI require
the usual intense monitoring. The data we have far,


is re-assuring, but it would really be great if we get a few more
southern observers involved until Nov. 1 - could you send out
another alert / request for help?
