Hi Christoph
Quote:

we have some news on this project! Our monitoring from February 2018 on leads to a first success. We got this message from Anna Aret:

Dear colleagues,

Michaela’s application for photmetric observations of rho Cas with BRITE satellites was successful. The BRITE observations will be executed in the period 7.8.2018 - 3.2.2019 at least once per night. Earth-based spectroscopy for the same period would be highly valuable. The star seems to be in a pre-outburst state.



Can I ask what is the probability of a publication resulting from this? I contributed 6 months of observations to this similar Convento project in 2014 and as far as I am aware the data was never analysed.

Oha! :shock: Did you ask Noel directly, Robin? No intermediate information about the working status? Cheers, Thomas

Hi Thomas,

Last time about 2 years ago. He needed a grad student I think. Also as you can see from the thread, Jack Martin contributed almost 2000 spectra but has heard nothing. He mentions it every time we meet. I understand that sometimes things do not work out for various reasons but it is good to have feedback even if the data were not useful after all.

Cheers
Robin

Indeed! My last information is that he's in Toledo. But that's also about 2 years ago. I'll send a message to him and to the Montreal group asking what's going on.
Cheers, Thomas

Hi Robin and Thomas!

Robin, on your initial question I can say that there will be a paper. But for more informatian I asked the professionals ;)
Additional Malin and I plan to do also some own work on the YHGs and hopefully it will result in a publication!

Cheers
Christoph

Hi,

I got an answer from Indrek:


Concerning the usage of data and publishing of results -
nobody can give 100% guarantee due to many different technical
and subjective issues that happen in the real life.
Presently, there is a strong will in Ondrejov and Tartu to go
to the end with this investigation.
To my mind, there is already a good start in these spectroscopic
and photometric time series which Christoph & Co have provided
so far.

Let's hope for the best outcome!

Cheers,

Indrek


Best regards
Christoph

Hello Everybody,

This looks interesting, I would like to join the campaign.

I am currently involved in 2 long term campaigns, so telescope time is valuable and limited to projects whose results will be published in a paper.

The more spectroscopic data we get the better the end result.

Regards,

Jack

Thomas,

There is also the xi Per Menkhib project that Noel Richardson asked for data on in this fiorum in 2014, and which I contributed to.

Please find out if the data is to be published ?

Regards,

Jack

Thomas,

Also the BRITE massive stars in Orion data requested by Alexandre David-Uraz in 2015.

I have not heard back.

Please find out if the data is going to be published.

Thanks for your efforts.

Hi Jack, I would appreciate if you could ask by yourself. Please understand that I am not involved in any present ongoing campaign and that I can't pass on such messages. Noel is still at Toledo University while I have no contact adress of Alexandre David-Uraz (I even don't know him).
Cherio, Thomas
