I am seeking to obtain V, Rc, and Ic data on this blazar with the W30 telescope for the purpose of contributing to the multifrequency campaign of Fermi, GASP, and VERITAS (TeV collaboration). I need 360 second images (e.g. 3-two minute exposures) in each of the three filters about once per week for the entire season (through the summer). (The comparison stars are included in the images.) Such observations can be considered as low priority in the sense that they can be inserted as time permits.
I use MIRA Pro 7 UE software package to do the reduction as CCD aperture photometry. These data, together with others participating in this important campaign, would be published in the standard astronomical journals in collaboration with the high energy colleagues involved in this campaign. Naturally, the AAVSO would be gratefully acknowledged in any publication.
