J/AJ/112/2769            Behlen Observatory Survey. IV. (Schmidt+ 1996)

The Behlen Observatory variable star survey: Paper IV Schmidt E.G., Seth A. <Astron. J. 112, 2769 (1996)> =1996AJ....112.2769S
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Photometry Abstract: Finding charts, accurate coordinates, and light curves are presented for 106 variable stars including 6 which are newly discovered. Parameters descriptive of the light curves are tabulated including periods for 16 stars which lacked them. The periods from the General Catalog of Variable Stars for ten stars were found to be seriously in error. The classification of the stars is discussed. Revisions or refinements of the classifications from the General Catalogue of Variable Stars are suggested for 20 stars and classifications are given for 7 which were previously unclassified. 15%-23% of the Bailey type ab RR Lyrae stars show scatter in their light curves which is suggestive of the Blazhko effect.
