Urgent request to monitor this new transient in multiple wavelengths with OC61:ASASSN-20da: new transient (12.0 mag) in Circinus
Complete ASAS-SN Sky Patrol (Shappee et al. 2014ApJ...788...48S
Almost constant (Vmag. 12.4) in ASAS-3.
It is unclear which of the two components has brightened. Spectroscopy and precise astrometry are urgently required (multiband as well as time-resolved photometry are encouraged, too).
|Target||RA (H.HH)||Dec (D.DD)||Magnitude||Telescope||Observation Frequency||Expiration Date||Proprietary Term|
|ASASSN-20da||14.835194||-65.82969||12.0–11.5||OC61||Daily||Sept. 21, 2020||6 Months|
It would be helpful for you to propose a specific plan (filters/frequency) rather than restate the ambiguous "(multiband as well as time-resolved photometry are encouraged, too)"?
The TAC recommends multiple filters. At that brightness, BVRI should work well.
This is a test comment.
Changes have been made so that all comments will be broadcast to the email@example.com group. This is to encourage all receivers to come back to this page and answer via comments instead of emails, thus giving us a better record of the discussion.
Committed to OC61. 3 sets of images in BVSRSI.
Bart: See how this works?
OK Kenneth, I'll let you know when the first images arrive. Thanks.
