Photometry, Spectrometry, and Polarimetry of FG Sge in the Active State

  title={Photometry, Spectrometry, and Polarimetry of FG Sge in the Active State},
  author={A. E. Rosenbush and Yu. S. Efimov},
Photometric, spectral, and polarimetric observations of FG Sge during the stage of increasing activity in its R Coronae Borealis type variability are presented and analyzed. a weakening of the current level of rare transient states of maximum brightness is interpreted as a consequence of increasing optical thickness of a permanent circumstellar envelope. The brightness of the He1-5 nebula in the instrumental system in the Uc and V bands is 20m.69±0m.13 and 23m.01±0m.58 from a square arc second…

IV-th Great Visible Brightness Minimum of R CrB. II. Spectral Observations
Low and high resolution spectral observations during the main stages of a uniquely long and deep minimum in the visible brightness of R CrB during 2007-2015 are reported. As it developed, the
The Spatially Resolved Bipolar Nebula of Sakurai’s Object. II. Mapping the Planetary Nebula Expansion
Observations of the ejecta from the final flash (FF) of helium shell burning in Sakurai’s Object (V4334 Sgr) are presented for 2015–2019, a period ∼20–24 yr after discovery. Adaptive optics images at


FG Sagittae: A newborn R coronae borealis star?
We have monitored FG Sge's spectroscopic changes since the time just prior to its dramatic fading in 1992 August. The most significant qualitative changes in the spectrum include large variations in
The spectrum of the nebula associated with FG Sagittae.
We present new spectrophotometric observations of the nebulosity associated with FG Sge. The emission-line spectrum appears to be that of a low-ionization planetary nebula. Observations of
The R Coronae Borealis stars — III. The pulsation and obscuration minima of RY Sgr
This paper presents and discusses optical [UBV(RJ)cl photometry of RY Sgr from the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) archives spanning the period from 1975 to 1988. The data are analysed
Variable Winds and Dust Formation in R Coronae Borealis Stars
We have observed P-Cygni and asymmetric, blue-shifted absorption profiles in the He i λ10830 lines of 12 R Coronae Borealis stars over short (1 month) and long (3 yr) timescales to look for
UBVRI Photometric Standard Stars Around the Celestial Equator: Updates and Additions
New broadband UBVRI photoelectric observations on the Johnson–Kron–Cousins photometric system have been made of 202 stars around the sky, and centered at the celestial equator. These stars constitute
Changes in the spectrum of the recombining planetary nebula He 1–5
In 2008, we observed the spectrum of the planetary nebula He 1–5, which has had no ionization source for more than 50 years. Comparison with the observations performed in 1972–1976 and 1988 shows
Models of pulsating low-massive yellow supergiants
The nonlinear self-excited oscillations of the envelopes of low-massive highly luminous stars are described. The parameters for these models wereM=0.8M⊙,Mbol=−5.5, −5.84 mag,Teff=4500, 5000, 5500 K.
