Hello all carbon star admirers. 

Would you like a little bit of special news?
It turns out that Case 32 (GSC 04015-00768) is the faintest star yours truly has ever observed!

Over on www.cloudynights.com one of the best imagers in the business Steve Smith from Colorado has produced a spectacular image of Case 32 on the Scientific Amateur Astronomy forum. 
He has given an estimated magnitude of +13.4 for this extremely faint carbon star. 

My previous faintest star was magnitude 13.2. That star was another carbon called Case 717 in Andromeda. 

So it's celebrations all round!

Aubrey. 

And I have also found out what NSV stands for from another contributor on Cloudy Nights: New Suspect Variable catalogue.
