Abstract

 

In order to encourage observers to assist in the Classical Cepheid Program (Cragg, 1972) we have started to develop new magnitude sequences for those stars requiring them. 203935 X Cyg, and 021959 SZ Cas are the first to be completed. For X Cyg the sequence stars are bright enough to have been measured with a photoelectric photometer attached to an 8" reflector. The new magnitudes have been incorporated into an existing 'a' chart and a new 'b' chart drawn by C. B. Ford. X Cyg is a binocular object throughout its range of about 5.8 to 7th magnitude, and is conveniently located near Epsilon Cygni. This star should be frequently observed.
