Because I now live in town I cannot observe from home. I have been participating in the HST campaign to observe 11 dwarf novae using iTelescope, but am limited by the cost. I would like to contnue but initially I would like to observe VW Hydri. It has magnitudes 8-14 and, from AAVSO data, regular eruption periods of about one month and super eruptions periods of about five months and it appears that another super eruption may be coming up. I would like to use the SA 200 filter on iTelescope T17 to get an occasional spectra during these occurrences. I've not used AAVSOnet before and may need some help.

The TAC is in favor of this proposal but observing details are needed. We usually encourage observations in at least two filters so that the data can be transformed. Adding a filter has minimal cost once you're on target and usually adds science value.
