Keep up the good work, Michael K. And keep working towards
a V filter for your big 'scope! As far as additional objects
to investigate, the DS23 list contains of course objects that
are no longer visible. Tom feeds a few stars into the system to
make observers happy, but more would be welcome so that you
can pick and choose. Dirk is a great resource to let you know
whether a particular eclipsing system might be of interest;
there are others on this list with expertise for other object types.
One class of object that I don't think has been searched
for in Tom's data are cataclysmic variable candidates.
There have been a bunch of surveys for blue objects, such
as the Palomar-Green survey, along with Xray surveys where
you can pick out stars with high Xray flux and variability.
If someone wanted to cross-check these potential candidates
and see if any fall within Tom's declination zone, that
would be a useful exercise. Note that many of these stars
will be faint at quiescence, but in outburst they may be
easy targets for TOM1. They will not be in master-star-lists
since an outburst might only occur on one night and the
star might not appear on the majority of the remaining frames.
Likewise, there should be several asteroids in Tom's data.
These again won't appear on multiple nights and so are
similar to transient objects. Someone should do a search
of the asteroid planning databases, see which asteroids appear,
and obtain their V/Ic magnitudes.
