Abstract (from CDS):

The results of the optical monitoring between November 1994 and November 1995 of twenty γ-ray loud blazars included in the Torino blazar monitoring program are presented. All data were taken with the 1.05m REOSC astrometric telescope of the Torino Astronomical Observatory, equipped with a 1242 x 1152 pixels charge-coupled device (CCD) camera. Observations have been carried out in the standard B, V (Johnson), and R (Cousins) bands. Source magnitudes are calculated with respect to reference stars in the same frame. For half blazar fields it was possible to perform a photometric calibration through the observation of Landolt's fields during photometric nights. In the other cases either photometric sequences from the literature were adopted or, when lacking, magnitudes were simply normalized to their minimum value. Most of the monitored objects show a more or less pronounced brightness variability on both short and long time scales. In a few cases also noticeable intranight variations were detected. Data simultaneous to pointings of the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) are present in our light curves: when the γ data are available they will provide a useful information in order to understand the possible correlations between the optical and γ-ray emissions. For one source (PKS 2254+074) we performed also photopolarimetry, deducing magnitudes, amount of polarization, and position angle in the UBVRI bands.
