Light curve for V973 Cygni : 2019-2020

About this image

This is my light curve for the semi-regular variable V973 Cygni during 2019 and 2020.

The main period of V973 Cyg is usually quoted as being around 40 days, but the more dramatic variation seen here looks to be more in line with a period of approx 378 days that has been suggested
