Informationen über Brh V134
Chris Lloyd, 19. Juni 2003
By combining Bernhard's data of BeV134 with that from ASAS3 I think the
star is a convincing W UMa variable. The preliminary ephemeris is
JD_minI = 2452025.63 + 0.24207xE
The variable has a full amplitude of 0.6 mag which suggests that it is a
high-inclination system, although neither of the eclipses look total.
I would like to send you observations of a new variable star
(Brh V134), which I have discovered in a systematic CCD-based
search for new variables.
In each observing run typically 600 images are taken of several survey
fields. The frames are processed automatically.
CCD-camera: Starlight Xpress SX (unfiltered)
Telescope: Celestron-8 (20 cm Schmidt-Cassegrain)

new Brh V134 14 36 28.4 -05 36 21.5 (J2000) 12.6-13.1 (CCD)
Brh V134: GSC 4992 663
The comparison star is GSC 4992 800 (12.29 mag),
which has been checked for constant brightness.
John Greaves has kindly sent a comment:
There is data available here :-
The period appears to be quite short, and the object fairly red
(somewhere between K5 and K9 using 2MASS J-Ks values).
USNO B1.0 gives a proper motion of -132 mas/y in RA, though only 10
mas/y in dec, which is not inappreciable (-13.2 arcsecs per century).
This may well mean it is not too distant, and therefore not
Though there is only one 'dip' in your data, the ostensible <1 day
periodicity, its apparent regular repeatability from the ASAS3
lightcurve, and the spectral class, suggest a fairly red EW star
(extinction/reddening should not be a problem in Virgo).
