II/45                Photometry of strong CN stars          (Janes+ 1971)

Strong Cyanogen Stars, Table 2: Photometric Data Janes K.A., McClure R.D. <Astrophys. J., 165, 561 (1971)> =1971ApJ...165..561J
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, CN band; Colors; Stars, cyanogen Description: A group of 185 late G and K giants, selected from the US Naval Observatory Catalog of Photoelectric Observations (Cat. II/4) because they had Ultraviolet deficiences, were observed with the intermediate band photometric system of the David Dunlap Observatory (defined by McClure and van den Bergh 1968AJ.....73..313M). The DDO photometry is included in Cat. II/17. File Summary:

Note (1): observatories are: B = Bethany station of the Yale Observatory C = Cerro Tololo Interamerican Observatory K = Kitt Peak National Observatory P = Previously published value, either in Paper I (1970AJ.....75...41M), or in McClure & van den Bergh (1968AJ.....73..313M) Note (2): "strong-cyanogen" stars have δCm(41-42)≥0.05mag, while "normal stars" have |δCm(41-42)|≤0.03mag. The cyanogen index is defined as: Cm(41-42) = C(41-42) - 1.66[C(45-48) - 0.45C(42-45) - 0.792]
