FF cam, January behavior of the H alpha line

I've started a spectral monitoring of one my favorite star, FF cam. I discovered this star in 2009 by a routine survey of Be stars. Considering the Bess program, this star was observed only once par year before. I was surprised in 2009 in two consecutives nights, while redoing spectra due to bad SNR, to see how much the h alpha profile has changed. I did some others spectra in 2009 showing a great activities in H alpha and let it down for a while. At this time i was using a LhiresIII... [Lire la suite]

IAC80, a mission on delta scorpii at the Teide

For nine nights i have been there in good compagny. http://www.iac.es/eno.php?op1=3&lang=en This mission was about the peri-astron of delta scopii and was a real success. We have got in nine nights 30 Halpha spectra, 30 HeII 4500, 4686 and one H gamma. All taken with a LhiresIII 2400gr/mm and ST10XME camera. Exhausting sometimes...  Two articles in english are ingoing. One for Sky and telescope, relating this fantastic adventure, and one on a referee journal concerning the scientific facts. One other in a french... [Lire la suite]

OT gem outburst !

OT gem, HD58050, Be star, has ran in activities. Double Ha peak get stronger in my last spectra.There is not a lot of spectra available in Bess, but such activities were seen from 1996 to 2001 by Valerie Desnoux and Christian Buil. Intensives observations are needing to constrain a possible period of the phenomena. http://arasbeam.free.fr/spip.php?page=beam_spectra&etoile=327 http://astrosurf.com/buil/becat/58050/58050.htm   _hd58050_20110114_979   It's always a great pleasure to observe such regain of a...

HD60062, FF cam

Another Be star, late type, B9 http://arasbeam.free.fr/spip.php?page=beam_spectra&etoile=1964 http://simbad.u-strasbg.fr/simbad/sim-basic?Ident=hd+60062&submit=SIMBAD+search There is a lack of spectra concerning this star with a suspicion of fast variation in Ha line. My three last observations showed three differents Ha spectra in 8 days. Two of them are of good snr only one is suspicious. What may cause this variation ? What is the period ? There is a needing for more spectrum coverage. Etoile de magV 7.9 montrant une... [Lire la suite]

Qu'arrive t'il à HD57682 ?

Cette étoile Oe magnétique, O?fpe a un comportement étrange, un appel à contribution est lancé. On ne connait qu'une poignée d'étoiles O de ce type et celle ci est entouré d'un disque qu'elle contraint par son fort champs magnétique. On observe de fréquentes éruptions en Ha dont on essaye de connaître la régularité. Enfin si il y en a une... Very strange behavior of this O?fpe star. frequent outburst occured at regular interval. It is necessary to constrain a period, more observations are needed. Aras link, lien vers la page d'aras... [Lire la suite]

Last Be spectrum

Last spectra of Be stars after two weeks of bad weather. Some different aspect of the Ha line profile depending of the Be activity and sight of view, pole on or equator. Gam Cas,mV 2.39 B0IVpe HD57682, mV 6.4 O9Ve, HD70340, mV 6.4 A2Vnnpe HD112028, mV 5.3 A1IIIshe HD142926, mv 5.74 B9pe Most of the spectrum are made in binnig2X2. Only the bright gam cas was made in binning 1X1 mode. The dispersion is twice in Bin2 than in Bin1 for the same resolution, around 15000 here. Slit is 35µm large and ccd pixel are 6,4µm. SNR for...

HD58713, new magnitude record !

Be star, A2Ve spectral type, HD58713 is from magnitude 8.68. New record of low brightness for my setup, Tak CN212 scope, LhiresIII 2400gr/mm and an Atik314L+ ccd camera. The sky was hazy, and not enough exposure time to get a good snr, about 10 here. Hope to achieve better snr, aroud 50 with exellent transparency and much more exposure. My goal was only to make the first specta of this star in Bess database, proud to be first. Following observations will be able to detect outburst of this star, in a quiet phase now.   Un...
