The end of monitoring of FS Aurigae

Update: Apr 16, 2011: FS Aur is declining from an outburst.

Upon my request, during the 2010-2011 observing season, AAVSO observers have conducted continuous, nightly monitoring of the unique cataclysmic variable FS Aurigae to clearly define the start and end times of consecutive dwarf nova outbursts and measure their outburst properties. The campaign goals have been successfully met; we have observed 7 consecutive outbursts in great details. An active stage of the campaign is complete even though nightly monitoring of the star through the end of the observing season is encouraged. However, no new colour and/or time-resolved observations are needed anymore. Thank you very much to everyone who observed!
