Field #3 of the Palomar-Groningen survey. II. Near-infrared photometry of semiregular variables. Schultheis M., Ng Y.K., Hron J., Kerschbaum F. <Astron. Astrophys. 338, 581 (1998)> =1998A&A...338..581S (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Photometry, infrared Keywords: stars: evolution - stars: AGB and post-AGB - Galaxy: center Abstract: Near-infrared photometry (JHKL'M) was obtained for 78 semiregular variables (SRVs) in field #3 of the Palomar-Groningen survey (PG3, l=0°, b=-10°). Together with a sample of Miras in this field a comparison is made with a sample of field SRVs and Miras. The PG3 SRVs form a sequence (period-luminosity & period-colour) with the PG3 Miras, in which the SRVs are the short period extension to the Miras. The field and PG3 Miras follow the same P/(J-K)0 relation, while this is not the case for the field and PG3 SRVs. Both the PG3 SRVs and Miras follow the Sgr I period-luminosity relation adopted from Glass et al. (1995MNRAS.273..383G). They are likely pulsating in the fundamental mode and have metallicities spanning the range from intermediate to approximately solar. File Summary:
