Abstract (from CDS):

We present results of an extensive photometric monitoring campaign of the peculiar emission star MWC 560 that covers the range 1990-1995. The time interval corresponds to the length of the proposed orbital period of this highly peculiar binary, which attracted considerable interest in January-April 1990, when absorption components, shifted by -6000km/s from corresponding emission lines, were observed. Here we present photometric data secured during: 113 nights of conventional UBV photoelectric photometry, 45 nights of high speed UBV photoelectric photometry to study the flickering activity, and 682 visual photometric estimates. MWC 560 has experienced a decrease in magnitude since the bright (V=9.2mag) phase in 1990. After the minimum reached in May 1994 (V=10.7mag), the star is currently increasing slowly in brightness. The decrease has been accompanied in all bands by large fluctuations superimposed on the mean trend. The B-V colour has shown a steady increase by 0.0.33mag/yr. U-B has remained stable at -0.07mag since late 1990. In all the observing nights devoted to high speed photometry we observed flickering activity in MWC 560. The data show that the flickering amplitude {DELTA}U increases with the decrease of the U magnitude. Quasi-periodic variations have always been detected. A period of ∼70min has been observed in ∼13 nights which is close to the ∼60min quasi-period reported by Michalitsianos et al. (1993). However, no coherent variability is traceable throughout the whole set of flickering data.
