Gary Poyner's BAA forum topic calling for observations of a new RCB star, IRAS 03536+6235, prompted me to take several images using both V and Rc filters at 60sec exposures with the target being at an altitude of 71deg.

Using Astrometrica with  5" aperture radius I determined a Vmag of 14.84 +/- 0.03 and a Rmag of 13.66 +/- 0.01  and a colour  (V-R) =1.18 +/- 0.03
