CVnet - Cataclysmic Variables Network


V1674 Herculis: bright and extremely fast nova!
Spectroscopy and photometry (V band etc.) required!





ASASSN-21gk: new transient (mag. 13) in Sagittarius
Spectroscopy and photometry required!





 
Nova in Cassiopeia: 
V1405 Cassiopeiae Nova Cassiopeiae 2021
= PNV J23244760+6111140 = CzeV3217 (19 March 2021)

Spectroscopy and photometry requested for SS Cygni (17 February 2021)






It’s all about the  standstills, those episodes where the star gets stuck at a mid-point between maximum and minimum. If it doesn’t exhibit standstills it isn’t a Z Cam star.










Data from Catalina Real Time Survey 

Drake et al. 2009, ApJ, 696, 87




Northern CVs brighter than 17th magnitude here.

Southern CV's brighter than 17th magnitude here.
