The dataset comprises published and unpublished measurements in the Stroemgren, Geneva and Walraven photometric systems. The measurements within each individual system are presented in a uniform manner. Combining observations from these three photometric systems, a VJ light curve has been constructed for each LBV. Examination of the light curves reveals variations on widely different magnitude and time scales. For explanation about the photometric sytems, see the definitions in the General Catalogue of Photometric Data: about uvby (Stroemgren) GCPD/04 ; Geneva GCPD/13 ; Walraven VBLUW GCPD/11 Objects: ----------------------------------------------------------- RA (2000) DE Designation(s) ----------------------------------------------------------- 17 41 58.9 -33 30 13 HD 160529 = V* V905 Sco 05 18 14.3 -69 14 59 S Dor = HD 35343 = MWC 108 = RMC 88 10 56 11.6 -60 27 13 AG Car = HD 94910 = AG Car = MWC 216 10 22 53.9 -59 37 29 HR Car = HD 90177 = MWC 202 05 02 06.0 -71 20 06 RMC 71 = HD 269006 ----------------------------------------------------------- File Summary:
