AAVSO Bulletin 78 for 2015 - Letter to Observers

Letter to Users of 2015 Bulletin

                                                                                                                                                        February 2015

Dear Observers,

AAVSO Bulletin 78 for 2015 - How to Use the Bulletin

AAVSO Bulletin 78 - Predicted Dates of Maxima and Minima of Long Period Variables for 2015 - is published in the new format that was introduced in 2011. The information that was included in earlier numbers of the Bulletin is included in this new format, along with more information. The Bulletin does not include stars that do not have an AAVSO mean curve.

AAVSO Bulletin 78 - Stars with Double Maxima

In AAVSO Bulletin 78 there are two stars that exhibit double maxima:  R Cen and R Nor. These stars therefore have primary and secondary maxima and minima. They are not included in the main Bulletin table. Their predicted dates of maximum and minimum for January 2015 through February 2016 are presented here in list form (JD and Gregorian calendar dates) and in approximation of the main Bulletin table format.

Variable stars with companions

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.
