Hello, my name is Matt, and I’m and astrophysics student from Bridgewater State University with Dr. Martina Arndt. I’m a looking to do some undergraduatre research using photometry and variable stars. One of the stars I plan to observe is X Cyg. For this particular variable star it would be extremely helpful to have some remote telescope images to analyze the light curves. I understand that this isn’t ground breaking research, however it’s would be extremely useful as I learn the methods of photometry. Ideally, over the next couple of weeks, I am looking for 2 or 3 images a night, with enough information to generate a light curve over its 16 day period. I defer to your expertise for exposure times and if a filter should be used.
Thank you very much and please let me know if need to provide any more information. m8rogers@student.bridgew.edu.
