AFOEV - Light curves

The light curves are plotted after our data. Their formatting is due to François Ochsenbein (CDS - Strasbourg Observatory) whom we thank for his kind help.
Click on the abbreviated name of the constellation then on the Argelander name of the star.

The light curve displayed for each star is based on the data collected during the last 12 months or the last 5 years or the curve using the whole dataset. Visual observations are plotted in green, mpg, pep(B) and CCD(B) observations in blue, pep(R) or CCD(R) measurements in red and I measurements in black. At the bottom of the page, a panel allows zooming on a selected part of the curve. To that effect, input the date and end of the interval (for instance 50000 and 51000) in the "x cuts" boxes. The amplitude can be reduced by inputting your choice of values for the magnitudes. Lastly, click on "Adapt Plot".

The home page of each variable allows access to the information contained in the Simbad and VizieR databases, and a field chart of the variable can be displayed by clicking on Aladin.

Simbad supplies basic information on the star, its names in different catalogues as well as bibliographical references.

VizieR reproduces data from the General Catalogue of Variable Stars (GCVS).

Aladin displays a photo of the field of the variable with the stars included in the Simbad, DSS2 and GCVS catalogues. Each star inf the field is assigned a specific colour according to the catalogue. The names of the catalogues used are stacked on the right side of the image : a catalogue is activated by clicking on its name. Clicking on LOAD in the menu bar located on top of the image displays a list of catalogues : one or several catalogues of this list can be consulted by clicking on SUBMIT. The major catalogues are included in the VizieR database. DETACH displays a full-screen image. UNDETACH returns to the initial

The menu bar on the right side of the image offers the following possibilities :

Clicking on a star with the mouse displays its name at the bottom of the image. Clicking on this line will display the data relative to this star.
To exit Aladin, click on "Precedent" or "Back".
