In the April 2014 Newsletter we published an article on variable stars with close companion causing problems with their photometry.
In this page we give more information and updated tables so you can be aware of the stars that are causing problems or have caused problems in the past.
We will be updating this information with more stars in the future.
If you find a problem similar to those described in the Newsletter article, please let us know.
These data are formally published for the years 1900 to 2008. For a description of this data set, please click here.
Note: a separate page exists for the data including unpublished times of maxima. Go here for the current data set including the most recent data (through February of the current year).
Stars with maxima and minima data are as follows:
