FCAPT photometry of the mCP stars HR 1297, 25 Sex, BX Boo, and 49 Her.


Abstract (from CDS):

I obtained additional differential Strömgren observations of four magnetic CP stars HR 1297, 25 Sex, BX Boo, and 49 Her with the Four College Automated Photoelectric Telescope (FCAPT). The seasonal light curves of 25 Sex do not show definite differences. The period of Manfroid & Renson of 4.37900 days is confirmed. The other three stars usually have light curves in phase or nearly so, but there are differences between observing seasons. As the local properties of the photosphere change very slowly with time for these stars that have radiative atmospheres and strong magnetic fields, we are viewing slightly different hemispheres at the same phase. To produce this result, their rotational axes precess about their magnetic axes. For HR 1297, which has moderate amplitudes of variation, the period of Adelman is refined to 15.7505 days. The additional observations of BX Boo do not change the best estimate of its period, 2.88756 days. Although its amplitudes of variation are less than those of HR 1297, there are similar differences between observing seasons. For 49 Her the period of 0.93663 days of Adelman et al. is verified. There are probably small season-to-season light curve differences. Of the mCP stars for which I have FCAPT Strömgren observations, at least 13% exhibit variability among their light curves for different years.
