VY Scl-Type Star V504 Cen

  author={T. Kato and Robert Stubbings},
  journal={arXiv: Astrophysics},
V504 Cen was classified as a possible R CrB-type star. Although this object has been spectroscopically confirmed to be a cataclysmic variable, no detailed study has been yet published. We show, from long-term visual observations and ASAS-3 public CCD data, that the light variation of V504 Cen is that of a typical VY Scl-type cataclysmic variable. This report for the first time presents a light curve and description of this overlooked rare bright VY Scl-type object.

MP Gem has long been suspected as a long-period eclipsing binary, which had not been seen in faint state for 71 years since the discovery in 1944. Its nature has been a mystery. Using Public DataExpand
