J/PASP/122/1285  Radial-velocities of 20 cataclysmic var. (Thorstensen+, 2010)

Optical studies of 20 longer-period cataclysmic binaries. Thorstensen J.R., Peters C.S., Skinner J.N. <Publ. Astron. Soc. Pac., 122, 1285-1302 (2010)> =2010PASP..122.1285T
ADC_Keywords: Stars, variable ; Radial velocities Abstract: We obtained time-series radial-velocity spectroscopy of 20 cataclysmic variable stars, with the aim of determining orbital periods Porb. All of the stars reported here prove to have Porb>3.5h. For 16 of the stars, these are the first available period determinations, and for the remaining four (V709 Cas, AF Cam, V1062 Tau, and RX J2133+51), we use new observations to improve the accuracy of previously published periods. Most of the targets are dwarf novae, without notable idiosyncrasies. Description: Our spectroscopic observations are from the 2.4m Hiltner or 1.3m McGraw-Hill telescopes at MDM Observatory in Kitt Peak, Arizona. File Summary:

Note (1): Positions should be accurate to ∼0.1". Note (2): The three numbers given in the References column are, respectively, the sources for the celestial position, the variability type, and the magnitude range. Most of the positions are measured from direct CCD images taken at MDM, with coordinate solutions derived from fits to the UCAC2 (Zacharias et al., 2004, Cat. I/289) or USNO-A2.0 (Monet et al. 1996, Cat. I/252). References are as follows: 1 = Positions from MDM CCD images 2 = Magnitudes from General Catalog of Variable Stars (Kholopov et al., 1998, see Cat. B/gcvs) 3 = Witham et al. (2007MNRAS.382.1158W) 4 = Position transcribed from UCAC-2 (Zacharias et al. 2004, Cat. I/289) 5 = Position measured from the Digitized Sky Survey served at Space Telescope Science Institute.
