Hi all,

What kind of object is BV And? Is it really a dwarf nova? I've once red it could be a AGN. Can someone sort this out?

Cheers,

Eddy

 

It's a CV.

Hi Eddy,

There's a 2000 paper by Liu and Hu (ApJS 128, 387) which found hydrogen Balmer emission without redshift and other spectral features consistent with it being a CV rather than an AGN.

OK thanks Matthew! There is not much written about that star...

Cheers,
