2 GCVS Team VB A (B 11.58mV, KO III, 46", 186deg). Mean brightness variations with P = 6670d and A = 3.5m are superimposed by light oscillations with A = 1.1m - 2m and elements given in the Table. Deep light minima were observed in 1891, 1908, 1925, 1942 - 43, 1959, and 1962. A graph of the light curve [M.W.Mayall, JRAS Can 59, 245, 1965.].
