on papers presented at the 88th and 89th AAVSO Spring meetings; revised Spring
Photoelectric observations of
RX Cephei from Zsoldas and McAdam (1993) and the authors, and long term visual
observations from Schmude and the AAVSO were analyzed. RX Cep, whose
variability has been questioned, appears to have become 0.15 magnitude brighter
between 1990 and 2000. There is also some
evidence of a 350-day period. The B-V color index of this
star may also be calculated as 1.12±0.04.
