J/PASP/107/324      Northern CV secondary photometric standards (Henden+ 1995)

Secondary Photometric Standards for Northern Nova-Like Cataclysmic Variables Henden A.A., Honeycutt R.K. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac. 107, 324 (1995)> =1995PASP..107..324H (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Binaries, cataclysmic ; Novae ; Photometry Abstract: An average of 11 B, V secondary standards per field have been established for 58 cataclysmic variable stars, most of which are nova-like variables. The standards are within a few arcminutes of the variable and are therefore well-suited for CCD photometry. The standards have brightness of V∼12-17 and have a typical accuracy per standard of +0.02mag. File Summary:
