Light curve for V CVn since January 2018

About this image

This is my light curve for the semi-regular variable V Canum Venaticorum since the start of 2018.

The period of V CVn is usually listed as approx 192 days. However, it is likely that there are also additional periods present and that the interaction between the multiple periods is responsible for the "humps" and other "irregularities" in the light curve.
