Abstract (from CDS):

We present VRi photometric observations of the quadruply imaged quasar HE0435-1223, carried out with the Danish 1.54 m telescope at the La Silla Observatory. Our aim was to monitor and study the magnitudes and colors of each lensed component as a function of time. We monitored the object during two seasons (2008 and 2009) in the VRi spectral bands, and reduced the data with two independent techniques: difference imaging and point spread function (PSF) fitting. Between these two seasons, our results show an evident decrease in flux by ≃0.2-0.4 magnitudes of the four lensed components in the three filters. We also found a significant increase (≃0.05-0.015) in their V-R and R-i color indices. These flux and color variations are very likely caused by intrinsic variations of the quasar between the observed epochs. Microlensing effects probably also affect the brightest ``A'' lensed component.
