The project is that the AAVSOnet telescopes monitor the LBV star S Dor.

In recent years, S Dor has been the subject of at least one observing campaign (AN 453), to support "a multi-wavelength campaign ... to study the photosphere of this star", and the monitoring has continued ever since.

My initial intention is to use VPhot to analyze the upcoming images from BSM_Berry (and BSM_S) and to submit the results to the AAVSO database.

Target RA (H.HH) Dec (D.DD) Magnitude Telescope Observation Frequency Expiration Date Proprietary Term
S Dor 5.303986 -69.25031 10.8–8.8 BSM_S daily Aug. 27, 2020 No
