The analysis of an extensive sample of high resolution spectra of the Wolf-Rayet binary WR22 recently allowed us to determine a minimum mass of 72 M_solar for the WN7 star. With such a high mass, WR22 is expected to be a core H-Burning star which has just evolved from a progenitor of at least 90-110 M_solar. [less ▲]

On the basis of narrow-band visible and near-infrared imagery as well as high-resolution spectroscopy, we report the discovery of a new LBV-type nebula around the B supergiant HD 168625. We find that it essentially consists of a dusty expanding shell from which seems to emerge a bipolar emission nebula, the whole embedded in a reflection nebulosity. The inner shell is stratified: the continuum emission arises beyond the ionized gas, and is possibly due to scattering of stellar light by large dust grains or to non-equilibrium dust emission. The unexpected presence of unidentified infrared emission bands (UIRs) in the spectrum of this object is also discussed. We finally report the non-detection of a comparable nebula around the nearby LBV HD 168607. [less ▲]

We discuss photometric errors that arise from the use of differing color-transformation schemes when extrapolating outside the range of the standard values that define the system. An example based on data from the Long-Term Photometry of Variables project (LTPV) at ESO is analyzed. Practically, the extrapolation errors are most evident as systematic brightness jumps of some program stars, seen when monitored over several observing runs. Conclusions are drawn about the choice of standard stars in the Stromgren system. [less ▲]

Over 200 Ca II K and H spectra of Beta Pictoris taken between September 19, 1989 and December 19, 1990 are presented. Many new variable features are observed, at low and high redshifts, together with a few blueshifted ones. The time scales for the variations are shown to be strongly dependent on the redshift of the variable lines. A rate of events of about 200/yr is derived; it is also shown that in some cases the absorbing cloud covers less than 40 percent of the stellar surface. The observed variations are analyzed and compared to those observed in the UV. These observations make it possible to test the present scenario of evaporating infalling bodies, in terms of velocity of variable lines, occurrence of variable events, small time-scale variations, and size of the absorbing cloud. It is shown that the observed velocity range for the variable components may be explained by the present scenario, as well as the size of the absorbing clouds. [less ▲]

Line profile variations of WR 134 are analyzed on more than 200 spectra collected at Haute Provence Observatory and at Kitt Peak National Observatory. No conclusive evidence is found for a periodic behavior. However, for some frequencies, for example, the ones close to nu = (n x 0.5)/d, the data are ill-distributed, and the existence of a related periodic phenomenon cannot be completely ruled out. This does not mean that the variability presents a purely random behavior. Several new characteristics of the observed deformations are extracted from the analysis of the spectra and it is tentatively suggested that these could be the signature of a bipolar flow. [less ▲]

A field in the Sagittarian bright cloud in the direction of the Galactic center is investigated by means of the B, V, and R Schmidt plates at the ESO, and 1165 variable stars are reported. The position, R magnitudes, epochs, and amplitudes of variation are given for each star, and the surface density per square degree of variable stars increases from 1.7 to 65. The number of variables in the present field is similar to that for field A, and variables of type L and/or M are more densely numerous toward the center of the Galaxy than at other locations. Of the objects listed, 65 are given with potential classifications based on morphological data from the B and R Schmidt plates. The preliminary observations suggest a success rate of 42 percent on the precise prediction of the object types. [less ▲]

The galactic early-type A hypergiant HD 160529 has been photometrically monitored in the Strömgren system during the past 18 years. HD 160529 has become fainter in the optical range by 0.5 mag during the past eight years. In addition, pulsation-like variations with a quasi-period of 57 days and with a peak-to-peak amplitude of about 0.1 mag in b and y were found. The fading was not completely monotonous a fall of at least 0.2 mag in b and y within about 40 days around JD2446500 is particularly remarkable. This jump is accompanied by a change in the temperature-sensitive c[SUB]1[/SUB] index of about -0.14 mag. HD 160529 has become visually fainter and hotter during the past eight years, thus becoming a new case of a galactic Luminous Blue Variable (LBV). Model calculations on the basis of the photometry and previously published as well as new spectroscopic observations have shown HD 160529 to be a close counterpart of R 110, a recently discovered LBV in the LMC. From this comparison an absolute magnitude of M[SUB]V[/SUB] = -8.9 and a distance of 2.5 kpc is derived. The stellar parameters characterising the maximum state are estimated to be T[SUB]eff[/SUB] ≍ 8000 K, log g ≍ 0.55, R ≍ 330 R[SUB]sun[/SUB], from which the mass is estimated to be only M ≍ 13 M[SUB]sun[/SUB]. From the Hα profile a lower limit of the mass-loss rate of HD 160529 was calculated, which is about 10 times higher than that of R 110; this could be a consequence of the higher metallicity of the galactic LBV. The low mass of HD 160529 makes this luminous blue star a good candidate for a post-RSG (red supergiant phase) object, providing some evidence that (as sometimes argued) low metallicity is not a necessary prerequisite for evolution of massive stars backward to higher temperatures.
