SZ-Cyg: Period ~15 days

SZ Cyg is a Cepheid with period ~ 15.1 days.  We have about a 60 day spread of images with Y41.  Below we present preliminary results in the Blue filter with Y41.  Only one reference star is in the fov-but it has mag 9.6, comparable to SZ Cyg and the occurresnce of this reference star is the primary reason we start our Cepheid project with the star.  A power pt is being prepared but for now we will just upload a set of images.

CHAOS perhaps! Light curve for ~ 60 day period in the Blue filter with Yerkes 41" reflector. Images by Vivian Hoette. The pattern is far from obvious here. Fourier analysis to follow.  11k v. 2 Nov 20, 2011, 3:31 PM Richard DeCoster

Grand Finale-SZ Cyg FOLDED light curve with respect to AAVSO ref 96. Looks pretty good-there are a few images that are less good that may be deleted as more data are taken. But notice the characterist shape of this Cepheid variable.  10k v. 4 Nov 20, 2011, 3:32 PM Richard DeCoster
