1 Otero, Sebastian Alberto Grazing clipses haven't been confirmed form MOST photometry analysis in 2016MNRAS.458.1964T. Eccentric system. Apsidal period has been published as 117.9 yrs (2016A&A...590A..54H) or 139 yrs (2016MNRAS.458.1964T). BCEP pulsations arise from the primary component and have an amplitude <0.01 mag. The previously reported period (0.1738 d.) is present but with a much smaller amplitude in MOST data, which shows several periods, the larger amplitude one being 1.441 d. (2016MNRAS.458.1964T).
2 Otero, Sebastian Alberto Eclipse amplitude is less than 0.01 mag. Ellipsoidal variability, 0.03 mag.
3 GCVS Team The Table gives the epoch of Min for the ellipsoidal variability and Porb. The depth of Min II up to 0.08m. SB 2. e = 0.205 +- 0.004. Apsidal motion: Pi = 108a +- 5a. Pulsations: P var, P = 0.17378587d (1908 - 1956); since 1956 Max = 2445405.63 + 0.17378680d*E [E.Chapellier, J.C.Valtier, J.P. Sareyan, J.M.Le Contel, D.Ducatel, P.J.Morel, AsAp 143, N2, 466, 1985.]. A var. 3 companions according to lunar occultation observations: 3.1m, 0.0025"; 4.5m, 0.05"; 7.5m, 0.5". Soft X-ray source, LX/Lbol = 2.9*10**(-8).
