4 RR Tau: Photometry and Spectroscopy

5 RR Tau, Spectra

6 Line Flux versus Continuum Brightness

7 V3798 Sgr R.A.: DEC: (2000.0)

8 V3798 Sgr H α (6563Å) Ri (6450Å)

9 A drop of theory… Differential Photometry: S (adu) T / (adu) C 1. Emission line flux correlates with the observed continuum flux S(H α ) = βγ * κS(Ri), β [f T (6563) * Δλ T (H α ) / f T (6450) * Δλ T (Ri)] * [f C (6450) * Δλ C (Ri)] ] / [ f C (6563) * Δλ C (H α )] γ 1 – (W a – W e ) / Δλ T (H α ) κ = exp [τ(6450) - τ (6563)] = exp [ Δm(Ri)]. 2. Emission line flux does not correlate with the dimming due to dust S(H α ) = βγ * κS(Ri) + E / [ f C (6563)]*Δλ(H α )], γ 1 – W a / Δλ T (H α )

12 Period 1 Period 2 Are UXORs intrinsically variable?

13 S(H α ) versus κS(Ri)

15 Conclusions Interference filter photometry of UXORs allows for separation of emission line variability from continuum variability Interference filter photometry of UXORs allows for separation of emission line variability from continuum variability V3798 Sgr is a new UXOR and it may be intrinsically variable V3798 Sgr is a new UXOR and it may be intrinsically variable MMO starts an extensive program of monitoring UXORs with interference filters MMO starts an extensive program of monitoring UXORs with interference filters
