LPV FQ Cas has incomplete data on the faint part of it's cycle. I am unable to measure it below about magnitude 17.5 with my 12" SCT at 204 meters ASL. During the next two months I expect it to be Magnitude 9.5 to 11 in I band, magnitude 14.5 to 17.5 in V band and magnitude 17 to ? in B band. No one seems to have seen it in B band below about magnitude 17.
Requesting V and B band measurements every two days. FOV should be about 10 to 20 minutes. I shoot 150 to 180 seconds with 12 inch aperture in B band and average 10 to 20 images to get mag 17.5 in B without over exposing comps 102 and 104. I offset my declination a bit from 59 13 55.1 to 59 13 15.1 to avoid a nearby bright star.
Photometry goes int to the AAVSO database.

need 90 days while FQ Cas remains to dim for me to see in B band. Request 10 images each night for averaging.
Committed to MPO61.
FQ Cas is getting to dim for me to see with 12" scope. Can we get it back on the que?
