Forums Spectroscopy Spectroscopes LBVs

Dr Paul Leyland

I don’t know of any reported variability of Sk -69 202.  I’d be mildly surprised if it wasn’t variable.

A good number of LBVs are accessible to amateur observation.  AE And and AF And are on my observing program.  Eventually I’ll take a look at others in M31 and make start on those in M33.  It’s a shame that the LMC and SMC never rise here.

Your mission, Robin, should you choose to accept it, is to take spectra of AE & AF And.  This post will self-destruct in five seconds.
