Abstract

(Abstract only) In my research of neglected binary stars I discovered that there were very few current data on the binary star WZ Oph. The Binary Star Database, AAVSO, Mt. Suhora Astronomical Observatory, and the BRND Regional Network of Observers (Chez Astronomical Society) revealed the most recent observations of WZ Oph occurred in the mid-1990s. For this reason I concluded that it would be a challenging project for summer of 2018 to attempt to establish a new ToM (time of minimum) for the primary eclipse of WZ Oph.
