ASCA weekly

Dear ASCA users,

An ASCA TOO observation of an X-ray transient,  XTE J2012+381, an 
outburst of which was discovered with RXTE/ASM, was proposed. We 
decided to perform an ASCA TOO observation during the span on May 29 6:00 
to May  30 4:30 (UT). The source is suspected to be a black hole candidate
and it may be still in the intesity incleasing phase at the time of the ASCA 
observation. The PI of the TOO is N. White, US CoIs; TBD, Janese CoIs; 
F. Nagase, Y. Ueda, T. Dotani, and TBA. The cluster, MS 1910+6736, once 
installed in the span is carried over and will be ischeduled in the next 
visible window.

In the re-servay  project of the central part (Y. Ueda) of the previous 
"Large Sky Survey" region, the pointing numbers were reduced from 10 
pointings to 4 pointings to get deeper exposure in each field.

F. Nagase
