AAVSO Special Notice #353

SDSS J153817.35+512338.0 obs crucial now and DT Oct is next
May 13, 2013

Further to AAVSO Alert Notice 471
( and AAVSO Special
Notice #351 (,
HST/COS is scheduled to observe the dwarf nova SDSS

SDSS J153817.35+512338.0 2013 May 16 22:44:06 through May 17 02:14:05 UT

The HST team will be making a final decision on observing SDSS
J153817.35+512338.0 based on the observations of May 13/14 and
14/15, and observations from the following night will also be
essential. Close monitoring of 1RXS J105010.3-140431 through May
18 is requested. SDSS J153817.35+512338.0 is V=18.6 at minimum
and its magnitude at maximum is unknown.

After SDSS J153817.35+512338.0, the next target will be the SU
UMa-type dwarf nova DT Oct:

DT Oct 2013 May 23 23:31:07 through May 24 02:05:03 UT

This date is revised from the preliminary date given in AAVSO
Special Notice #351. Giving SDSS J153817.35+512338.0 highest
priority, please also monitor DT Oct; close monitoring May 17
through 25 is essential. DT Oct is V=16.5 at minimum and V=11.8
at maximum.

As instructed in AAVSO Alert Notice 471, for CCD observers,
simultaneous photometry [shortly before, during, and after the
HST observations] would be ideal. For the magnitude estimates, a
nightly V measurement from now through the HST observations and
a day beyond would be best. If positive visual observations are
possible, they are welcome, as are visual fainter-than
observations fainter than magnitude 15.0.

Please report observations as soon as possible to the AAVSO
International Database using the names SDSS J153817.35+512338.0
and DT Oct, respectively. If an outburst is detected, please
report observations immediately. Many thanks!
