Based on new observations during 2015-2020 and published data, the unusual eruptive variables PV Cep and V350 Cep are examined. It is shown that PV Cep underwent a regular outburst followed by a drop in brightness that lasted overall from 2011 to 2019 and is still in a deep minimum. The outburst was accompanied by substantial changes in the intensity and profiles of a number of lines, including H , [SII], and [OI]. The forbidden lines generally have negative radial velocities and can be divided… 

No-z model: results and perspectives for accretion discs

Accretion discs surround different compact astrophysical objects such as black holes, neutron stars and white dwarfs. Also they are situated in systems of variable stars and near the galaxy center.

Biermann battery as a source of astrophysical magnetic fields

Abstract A large number of galaxies have large-scale magnetic fields which are usually measured by the Faraday rotation of radio waves. Their origin is usually connected with the dynamo mechanism

EXORCISM: A Spectroscopic Survey of Young Eruptive Variables (EXor and Candidates)

We present an optical/near-IR survey of 11 variable young stars (EXors and EXor candidates) aimed at deriving and monitoring their accretion properties. About 30 optical and near-infrared spectra (



Spectra of PV Cep and GM1-29 (RNO 125) in 1976-1997

The main spectral characteristics of PV Cep, a T Tau star, and of the variable nebula GM1-29 associated with it are considered. Their variations during 1976-1997, based on observations on the 6-m

Continuing changes in the peculiar nebulous object PV Cephei

Changes in the nebular structure, optical spectrum and stellar brightness of the faint star PV Cephei and the nebulosity associated with it are discussed. Iris photometry of the starlike object at

Spectrum of V350 Cep: 1978–1994 observations

The results of spectroscopic observations on the 6-m telescope in 1978–1994 are given for V350 Cep, a T Tauri star with an unusual light curve, located in the star-forming region NGC 7129. A general

History and Spectroscopy of EXor Candidates

The EXors are T Tauri stars (TTSs) that occasionally flare up from minimum light, apparently as the result of a massive infall of circumstellar material. The prototype, EX Lupi, is the only example

Towards a better classification of unclear eruptive variables: the cases of V2492 Cyg, V350 Cep, and ASASSN-15qi

Context. Eruptive variables are young stars that show episodic variations of brightness: EXors/FUors variations are commonly associated with enhanced accretion outbursts occurring at intermittent

Interactions between pre-main-sequence objects and molecular clouds. II. PV cephei

CO observations reveal a bipolar flow associated with the peculiarpre-main-sequence object PV Cephei. The axis of this flow is roughly aligned with the symmetry axis of GM 29, the cometary nebula

V2494 Cyg: a unique FU Ori type object in the Cygnus OB7 complex

A photometric and spectral study of the variable star V2494 Cyg in the L 1003 dark cloud is presented. The brightness of the star, formerly known as HH 381 IRS, increased by 2.5 mag in R (probably in


I present a study of two Herbig Ae stars that are in completely different evolutionary stages: V892 Tau and PV Cep. Using sub-arcsecond interferometric observations obtained with the Combined Array

A long-term UBVRI photometric study of the pre-main sequence star V350 Cep

Results from UBVRI optical photometric observations of the pre-main sequence star V350 Cep during the period 2004–2014 are presented. The star was discovered in 1977 due to its remarkable increase in

Pre-Main-Sequence Stars in the Cepheus Flare Region

We present results of optical spectroscopic and BVRCIC photometric observations of 77 pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars in the Cepheus flare region. A total of 64 of these are newly confirmed PMS stars,
