Light curves for this UGZ cataclysmic star are presented.
CN Ori is a cataclysmic star, that is a binary star with an accreting white dwarf.
The orbital period is 3.9 hours. It is classified as a UGZ dwarf nova,
with outbursts every 18 days.
The observations were carried out with a 203mm SC telescope, a Clear filter
and a SBIG ST7E camera (KAF401E CCD). 711 images were obtained over 3 nights.
Each exposure has a duration of 60s.
The comparison star is GSC 4776-00527 with an assumed unfiltered magnitude of
12.700. The check star is GSC 4776-00519 with a measured magnitude of
14.419 and a standard deviation of 0.036. A sample image with the field
of view is here.
The resulting light curves:
Red: CN Ori, Green: the check star magnitudes shifted by +2 mag.
The error bars are the +/- 1-sigma statistical uncertainties.
The check star magnitudes are not shifted.
The check star magnitudes are shifted by -1 magnitude.
