HadV48: An eclipsing binary ?
K. Haseda discovered the new variable star HadV48 and reported to VSNET
on April 12. The object remain at about 11.2mag until abrupt fading to
<13.0 mag on April 1
On April 13, S. O'Connor reported HadV48 has apparently recovered to
11.55mag from the minimum on April 1
T. Kato suggested this may be a large-amplitude eclipsing vatiable
K. Takamizawa reported his observations since 1994 from his patrol photographs.
In the data, occasional deep fadings are seen, as reported
by Haseda. Takamizawa commented the apparently increased frequency of
faint observations in this season
T. Kato provided a tentative period of 2.997 day using above data.
The suggested period is very close to three siderial days, which may
explain the lack of fading episodes observed in Japan for the period
