Gaia22alz is the Galactic Nova outbursted in 2022.

ATel #15355 says: "The slowly rising light curve and the spectral changes make this an interesting transient and multi-wavelength follow up are highly encouraged."

Lately, only Andrew Pearce observed it regularly (according to the AAVSO International Database), but there are many gaps in the light curve. Therefore, to make the light curve more complete, I request observations using the AAVSOnet southern telescopes with V, B, r', i' filters.

For OC61: 8 images (VBr'i' + VBr'i') x 60 seconds will be enough every night. For BSM-Berry: 8x120 sec.

With best regards, Filipp.
