I have been invited by Prof. Mauri Valtonen (Tuorla Observatory, University of Turku, Finland) to participate in a campaign to monitor OJ 287 until the end of the current observing season (May 2016).
Mauri recommends R & B filters and regular monitoring until solar conjunction in 2016. I'll take advisement on exposure time. I will of course be monitoring myself in the visual as well during this period.

Accepted at low priority, i.e. only if it doesn't conflict with other projects.
The coming week(s) is critical according to the project co-ordinator. Haven't received any data yet though. Might you 'up' the priority a notch?
