Abstract (from CDS):

We report V, R, and I band CCD photometry of the radio galaxy 3C 390.3 obtained with the 1.56 m telescope of the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory from 1995 March to 2004 August. Combining these data with data from the literature, we have constructed a historical light curve from 1894 to 2004 and searched for periodicities using the CLEANest program. We find possible periods of 8.30±1.17, 5.37±0.49, 3.51±0.21, and 2.13±0.08 yr.
