Light Curve for TT Cygni : 2015-2018

About this image

Here is my light curve for the variable star TT Cygni for the years 2015 to 2018.

TT Cygni is listed as being a semi-regular variable star of type SRB. It is usually described as having a period of 118 days,

A period close to a year might seem more likely from my light curve.

There do, however, appear to also be some shorter term ups & downs (appearing like humps superimposed on the main rises and falls) that may tie in with this 118-day period.
