I would like to obtain B, V and R images for the variable star VZ Pictoris. This star is also known as Kapteyn's Star. In addition to having high proper motion it is a BY Draconis Variable.
Right ascension 05h 11m 40.58984s
VSX does not indicate a period. Would be great to grab a short session each night for a bit.
|Target||RA (H.HH)||Dec (D.DD)||Magnitude||Telescope||Observation Frequency||Expiration Date||Proprietary Term|
|VZ Pic||5.194600||-45.01842||9.22–8.9||BSM_Berry||1||Oct. 24, 2023||No|
Note from Sebastian:
"Beware of ID issues due to the high proper motion because it is nowhere near the J2000.0 position."
