V389 Cygni is one component
of the multiple system ADS 14682. The remarkable conclusions reached by
Guthnick in 1942, in regard to the interpretations of seemingly incompatible
radial velocity and photometric periods, have never been challenged or
confirmed. New data, especially photoelectric observations, are needed for a
better understanding of this enigmatic object.
