J/A+A/344/263       B-V colour excess of Miras                 (Knapik+, 1999)

Dust extinction and intrinsic SEDs of carbon-rich stars. III. The Miras, CS and SC stars Knapik A., Bergeat J., Rutily B. <Astron. Astrophys. 344, 263 (1999)> =1999A&A...344..263K (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Stars, carbon ; Stars, variable ; Photometry Keywords: stars: AGB and post-AGB - stars: carbon - circumstellar matter - ISM: dust, extinction Abstract: A study of 73 carbon-rich Miras (see Subsec. 6.1) with suitable solution for 56 stars at one or several phase of their variations. In the second part, preliminary and incomplete results are reported for 17 additional Miras observed at only one phase. Table 5 contains our HC-CV-classification (see text) for the stars and their colour excess E(B-V) as determined by the method described in Subsec. 2.2. File Summary:

Note (1): The table contains two parts: 56 Miras in the first one are satisfactionally studied at one or several phases, while preliminary and incomplete data are given in the second part for 17 additional Miras at a single phase (with an *). Note (2): i: intermediary phase, M: maximum light , m: minimum light, ?: unknown Note (3): Name of the IR filter where some excess due to thermal emission from dust is first observed (no is quoted when no excess is found up to IRAS [25]).
