1 Otero, Sebastian Alberto J-K= 1.78. Surrounded by a gas and dust envelope. Spectroscopic elements in 2012A&A...540A..91M confirm the variability is orbital but the light curve shows the system is not eclipsing and displays only one maximum and one minimum. Spectral type B0Ve in 2004A&AT...23..213P and B0.0Ve in 2012ApJS..199....8G but considered as a supergiant in other publications. (O8V)e+K3: in Buscombe (1995) and B5/6[e]+K3: in 1994A&AS..104..315T. Reflection effect on the cooler star? 0".32 visual binary (A= 8.9; B= 11.6 Hp) according to the Hipparcos catalogue.
2 GCVS Team Min II 9.5. Gas and dust envelope.
