Dear Arai-san and colleagues,

Thank you very much for your spectrum observation. I see that MisV1444
is a Mira type.

I guess the POSS2 Blue plate was taken around the maximum, and the
POSS2 Infrared plate and the 2MASS images were taken around the
minimum. So those data do not look like a Mira type...

Thank you very much for everyone who worked on this star. I will
create a web page on this star at the MISAO Project web site in the
near future.

Best regards,
