    Gary Poyner recently circulated a link to the paper “Cataclysmic and RCB Type Candidates for Identification of Three Suspected Variables” by E V Kazarovets

    containing a request for a spectrum of the suspected RCB star NSV 11988. I recorded the following spectrum last night along with B and V magnitudes of B=14.07 and V=12.38. The profile is a close match to spectral type M4III.

    No C2 bands or emission lines then ?

    I sent the spectrum to Elena Kazarovets and just got the following reply. David

    Dear Dr. Boyd,
    Thank you very much. I have revised the type of variability for NSV 11988 (LB instead RCB:) in the new (82-nd) Name-list we are preparing.

    Best wishes,
    Elena Kazarovets

    Oh well, another prospective RCB bites the dust!

    Think I’ll keep an eye on it for the rest of this season to see what it’s up to.
