During the commissioning phase of IUE observations were made of a selection of hot stars: the white dwarf HZ43, the hot subdwarf BD + 75°325, the nucleus of the planetary nebula NGC6826, the dwarf nova SS Cygni, and the peculiar object η Carinae. The observations were made in the low dispersion mode and the data have been reduced using a preliminary calibration. The results are presented and discussed for each object. 

IUE observations of extragalactic objects

During the commissioning phase of IUE several extragalactic objects were observed spectrally at low dispersion in the UV range λλ1150–3200: the Seyfert galaxies NGC4151 and NGC1068, the QSO 3C273,

IUE observations of WZ Sagittae in outburst

Preliminary results of the analysis of the low resolution spectra from the recurring nova WZ Sagittae are discussed with reference to the similarity between WZ Sge and dwarf novae and the

The Eclipsing Binary System LB3459

The extremely blue foreground LMC star LB3 1 +59 (= HDE 269696) was reported by Kilkenny, Hilditch and Penfold (1978) to be an eclipsing binary system with a period of 6"17 m photometry and data

Outburst Cycle of the Dwarf Nova SS Cygni

Extensive observational data obtained to date is analyzed with special attention given to space observations. The spectral type of the white dwarf is estimated and it is concluded that accretion of

A summary of the UV, optical and IR properties of disks in CV's. [cataclysmic variables

The available observations of dwarf novae and novalike systems that are relevant to the study of accretion in cataclysmic variables are reviewed. This includes UV data from IUE and optical

Photoionization models for the wind from TW Vir

One of the outstanding features of the UV spectra from dwarf novae when viewed during outburst, and from many other cataclysmic variable (CV) stars, is the existence of P-Cygni type profiles in the

Hubble Space Telescope Observations of the Old Nova DI Lacertae

We have carried out a synthetic spectral analysis of a Hubble Space Telescope Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph observation of the old nova DI Lacertae (Nova Lacerta 1910). The spectrum, obtained

CO in Planetary Nebulae and Proto-Planetary Nebulae

The evolution between the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) and the planetary nebula (PN) phases has long been a “missing link” in our understanding of stellar evolution. Through the study of cool IRAS

Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer Observations of OY Carinae in Superoutburst

The Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) satellite was used for three days beginning on 1997 March 26.96 UT to obtain photometric and spectroscopic observations of the eclipsing SU UMa-type dwarf nova

Mass loss from central stars of planetary nebulae

From a high resolution spectrum taken with IUE, the central star of the planetary nebula IC 2149 is found to exibit a wind with edge velocity of 1440 ± 100 km s-1. Our preliminary evaluation of the



IUE observations of the interstellar medium

Results from a preliminary study of interstellar absorption lines in the spectra of the three stars HD149757, HD93521 and HD153919, observed by the IUE during its commissioning phase are presented.

IUE observations of X-ray sources: HD153919 (4U1700–37), HDE226868 (Cyg X-1), HZ Her (Her X-1)

The first UV spectroscopic measurements of binary X-ray sources with IUE show highly variable emission from a photoionised plasma in the object HZ Her, and give evidence for localised circumsystem

A self-consistent model-atmosphere analysis of the EUV white dwarf HZ 43

Observations of the hot white dwarf HZ 43 from the visible to the EUV are analyzed using model atmospheres. We find that the derived effective temperature is a function of the assumed helium

Discovery of a nonsolar extreme-ultraviolet source

Results are reported for observations of EUV emission from an extrasolar object which were made with a grazing-incidence telescope during the Apollo-Soyuz mission. The total energy flux in the

A variety of new data are presented on the white dwarf HZ 43, the first extrasolar object to be detected at extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) wavelengths. Optical spectrophotometry with 8 A resolution has

Possible detection of very soft x rays from SS Cygni

An ultrasoft X-ray source is described which is less than 30 min in diameter and is possibly identified with the well-known variable star SS Cygni. Previous soft X-ray observations of this region of

Demonstration that certain details of the spectrum of eta Carinae are consistent with a model in which a compact H II region is photoionized by radiation from a very massive star whose surface

Copernicus observations of interstellar absorption at Lyman alpha
